Asus has revealed three peripherals in its Republic of Gamers line at CES. The first is the ROG Claymore gaming keyboard. It features Cherry MX RGB mechanical switches, n-key rollover, and macro programming. The keyboard is backlit, and can be synced to ROG motherboards to give users hotkey control over fan speeds, boot up, overclocking, and BIOS access. The most notable feature, however, is the detachable "macro-infused" numpad.
Second on the list is the ROG Spatha gaming mouse. It comes with twelve programmable buttons, including six ergonomic thumb buttons. The switches under the left and right buttons can be swapped out easily depending on the user's preference. By default, the ROG Spatha comes with Omron switches rated for 20 million clicks, or approximately five games of Starcraft II. The mouse can be used in wired or wireless mode, although it has a higher polling rate in wired mode. And yes, it has customizable lighting effects.
Last up is the ROG XG Station 2, the second generation of Asus's external graphics docking station. The ROG XG Station 2 allows users to tap into the power of a desktop graphics card for their Asus laptops. Asus's announcement is a little shy on details, but we know that the docking station charges the laptop and can be unplugged without restarting the laptop. We're unsure about type of connection is used between the laptop and the station, although similar products have used a Thunderbolt connection.
