Unmatched gaming precision and accuracy

Ergonomically designed for marathon gaming
ROG GX860 features LED accents that switch between three striking colors (red, orange, green) to indicate current settings. ROG GX860 has an ergonomic design that suits all grip types, and is ideal for marathon gaming.
ROG GX860 has non-peeling, heat-resistant side grips with intricate Mayan-inspired detailing. It also has built-in forward and back buttons, as well as a customizable thumb button.
Customizable user profiles and mouse settings
ROG software engineers have provided users with a software interface to customize ROG GX860 to their liking. This intuitive user interface lets users access DPI levels, button functions and illumination settings; as well as more advanced options like angle-snapping, lift height cut-off, double-click speed, and USB polling rate.
Users can test out their applied changes in a virtual test arena, with a precision test that requires users to draw a straight line; while the movement and click test requires users to click dots that randomly pop up in a given timeframe.
