Asus Republic of Gamers has announced a new ambidextrous mouse aimed at gamers. Dubbed the ROG Strix Impact, the new wired optical gaming mouse comes with a lightweight and ergonomic design that has been optimized for multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) games.
Designed with input from pro gamers, the ROG Strix Impact is claimed to meet the needs of even the most demanding gamers out there. The mouse weighs in at just 91 grams, which should help reduce strain on the wrist and arm during long gaming sessions. At the same time, it will also have a positive impact on movement speed. As the mouse features an ambidextrous design, both left- and right-handed gamers will feel comfortable using it.
The ROG Armoury software lets gamers take complete control over the mouse’s operation, allowing them to create button mappings, tweaking performance settings, saving mouse profiles, and customizing the RGB lighting. With the ASUS Aura Sync and ROG Sync feature, gamers can choose to have the lighting synchronize with other Aura-enabled products that they may have installed in their system, for unified lighting themes.
Coming to the core specs, the ROG Strix Impact comes with a 5000 dpi PixArt PMW3310 sensor and high-quality Omron switches that boast of industry-leading 50-million-click lifespan. Gamers can make on-the-fly sensitivity adjustments with the help of a DPI switch behind the scroll wheel. There is even a DPI indicator so you can check the current setting with just a quick glance. Other highlights include a low-friction cable with a specialized rubber coating and an angled cable attachment point to minimize cord drag.
