Two new announcements from ASUS today in the company's ROG lineup. First up is Sica, a 5000dpi optical gaming mouse marketed towards multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) gamers. Sica has an ambidextrous design and uses Omron D2FC-F-7N switches with easy-swap switch sockets so you can customize click resistance if you want.
ROG Sica has a compact, ambidextrous design optimized for multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) gamers of all grip types. It features a simple independent two-button and single clickable scroll-wheel setup, with durable Omron® switches. The left and right mouse buttons are separated from the main mouse body to reduce travel distance to ensure increased button tactility and responsiveness. An improved exclusive easy-swap switch socket design lets users customize click resistance.

ROG Sica packs an optical sensor that tracks at up to 5000 dots per inch (DPI), and at speeds of up to 130 inches per second and 30g acceleration to give users swift, pixel-precise mouse tracking.

The innovative Armoury software lets users customize button functions, performance settings, and ROG logo light effects.

ROG Sica has an iron-gray and red color scheme, a glowing ROG logo and intricate Mayan-stenciled side panels to give it presence. It has a gold-plated USB 2.0 connector, and low-friction Teflon® feet.

Next is the ASUS ROG Whetstone, a fabric mousepad that measures 320mm x 270mm x 2mm (L X W x H). Whetstone features a "Maya-inspired" texture design.
ROG Whetstone has a non-slip silicone base and an intricate Mayan-inspired textured black fabric surface designed for precise mouse tracking and control. Its portable, rollable design makes it easy to pack and bring to LAN parties.

At just 2mm thick, ROG Whetstone incorporates the latest 8-stage bonding and heat-sealing techniques to ensure durability. Even after extensive use, ROG Whetstone is guaranteed to last, with rounded edges that resist fraying and creasing for always-smooth mouse tracking. ROG Whetstone has an odorless silicone base, with a special water-resistant coat that allows for easy cleaning — simply wash, wipe, and shake to dry.
