Fremont, California (February 17, 2016) -- ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the latest ROG Sica gaming mouse with a new Glacier White finish and upgraded Omron® switches. The ROG Sica is an ambidextrous gaming mouse optimized for MOBA gaming and all grip types.
A Glacier White body featuring a glowing ROG logo and Mayan-stenciled side panels give the Sica a distinct presence…
The Sica is armed with a simple two-button and clickable scroll-wheel setup. The twist is an improved easy-swap switch socket design lets users customize click resistance with Omron switches that offer 20-million-click durability. The left and right mouse buttons are also separated from the main mouse body to reduce travel distance and improve responsiveness.

Tracking of movement is swift and precise, thanks to a 1000Hz polling rate and 5000 DPI capable optical sensor that can track speeds up to 130 inches per second with 30g acceleration.

Rounding out the Sica package is the Armoury software, which allows users to customize button functions, performance settings, and ROG logo light effects. Users can also save their profiles in the Sica’s built-in flash memory for convenience.
The ASUS ROG Sica is priced at $49.99 and will be available from ASUS Authorized resellers and distributors soon.
