ASUS shows off its new Strix Tactic Pro, a mechanical gaming keyboard with Cherry MX Red switches.
The company decided to do things a little different and instead of giving the keyboard a red or blue backlight it opted for orange. The keyboard is equipped with 21 programmable macro keys, it has an adjustable backlight brightness and offers NKRO support.
Pricing and availability is unknown.
Strix Tactic Pro is a mechanical gaming keyboard available with MX red (light no click), blue (light with click), brown (heavy with click) or black (heavy no click) keys, depending on your preference, that are good for 50 million keystrokes. The Tactic Pro has the highest-specification N-Key Rollover (NKRO) technology over USB which ensures that every key press is registered, regardless of how many keys are held down at once. When it needs to behave like a traditional keyboard, the 6-Key Rollover (6KRO) switch flicks its mode instantly. It’s got a total of 21 macro keys; between the 13 dedicated keys, plus, F1-F8 can be additionally reassigned, while the on-the-fly macro-recording key allows actions and keystroke sequences to be captured without interrupting gameplay. The keyboard can be modified with its software or left to use the hardware PnP modes.
