ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces ROG Keris FPS Gaming Mouse Series

ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces ROG Keris FPS Gaming Mouse Series
Lightweight and ergonomic design is ideal for marathon gaming and features a 16,000 dpi, 400 ips optical sensor and 1000 Hz polling rate
Fremont, California (February 11, 2021) — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the ROG Keris gaming mouse series comprising of the wired ROG Keris and ROG Keris Wireless. The latter is a lightweight 79-gram mouse with tri-mode connectivity and a specially tuned 16,000 dpi sensor. It can be used in wired, 2.4 GHz RF or Bluetooth® LE mode, and it features the exclusive push-fit switch socket and an ROG Micro Switch, left and right polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) polymer buttons, ROG Omni mouse feet, ROG Paracord and Aura Sync RGB lighting.
Designed with input from Esports pros
In designing this mouse series, ROG worked with professional gamers, using their feedback to create a gaming mouse with exceptional ergonomics. The resulting mouse shape provides a comfortable grip and precise control for gamers of varying hand sizes.
Tri-mode connectivity
ROG Keris Wireless can be connected by USB, ultrafast RF 2.4 GHz wireless or energy-efficient Bluetooth LE. RF 2.4 GHz is ideal for gaming, while Bluetooth LE is perfect for daily tasks. Each ROG Keris gaming mouse features a specially tuned 16,000 dpi, 400 ips optical sensor and 1000 Hz polling rate.
ROG push-fit switch socket and ROG Micro Switch
The exclusive push-fit switch socket design makes it easy to remove and drop in new switches, allowing users to tailor operating force and feedback to preference, or replace worn or broken switches. The new ROG Micro Switch boasts a 70-million-click lifespan and a gold-plated electro-junction for improved durability and longevity.

Strict ROG manufacturing standards ensure that each switch is individually inspected; left and right switches are then sorted and paired to keep force deviation within +/- 5 gram-force for a consistent click feel.
Strong and lightweight
An internal honeycomb design provides structural rigidity while keeping weight down to a minimum. ROG Keris Wireless weighs just 79 grams and ROG Keris weighs 62 grams (without the cable).
Optimized for gaming
Durable, nonslip left and right PBT mouse buttons resist wear or shine — even after prolonged use — to ensure a consistent feel. ROG Keris Wireless features two black side buttons that can be swapped out for gray and pink ones for added personalization.

Both Keris and Keris Wireless include the improved ROG Paracord – an extremely flexible and lightweight cable designed to minimize snags and maximize movement. The raised port on the mouse provides space between the cable and mouse surface to reduce cable drag and noise.

The 100% Teflon (PTFE) mouse feet on the ROG Keris are rounded and 25% smoother than those found in other gaming mice to ensure an effortless glide across any surface. This design is based on extensive internal testing, which showed that mouse feet and directionality affect glide more than size.

The wired ROG Keris will be available in North America from March 2021 with an MSRP of $69.99. The ROG Keris Wireless is available now in North America at AmazonNewegg and B&H with an MSRP of $99.99. Please contact your local ASUS representative for further information.
