KEY POINTS

  • Ergonomic design, with exclusive push-fit switch sockets for varied click resistance, Aura RGB lighting with Aura Sync support and DPI target button
  • Features gaming-grade 12000 DPI optical sensor, durable switches with 50-million-click lifespan and intuitive ROG Armoury software

Taipei, Taiwan (16th March, 2017) — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced Gladius II, the successor to the popular ROG Gladius optical gaming mouse. Gladius II features an ergonomic right-handed design that is optimized for first-person shooter (FPS) games. It has an exclusive push-fit switch socket design for varied click resistance, and durable switches rated to at least 50 million clicks. In addition, it features a dedicated DPI target button for more accurate sniping, an advanced 12000 DPI optical sensor and ASUS Aura RGB lighting technology with Aura Sync support.

Designed for first-person shooters

ROG Gladius II was designed with input from professional gamers to ensure the right look and feel.The result is a comfortable gaming mouse that’s optimized for FPS shooters and designed for right-handed gamers and all grip types. It features the ASUS-exclusive push-fit switch socket design that allows gamers to vary click resistance, and extend the lifespan of the mouse by replacing worn switches. Gladius II uses durable Omron® mouse switches that are rated to at least 50 million clicks, and is bundled with an additional pair of high-quality Japanese-made Omron switches should gamers want a different click feel.

Gladius II has a DPI switch that allows for instant switching between two sensitivity levels. It also features a DPI target button: Holding the button down lowers the DPI for more accurate sniping or raises it for faster scrolling across the screen; default DPI settings return as soon as the button is released. Gladius II uses a high-end 12000 DPI optical sensor to ensure the speed, resolution and accuracy needed for an optimal FPS gaming experience. 

Flexible customization

ASUS Aura RGB lighting lets users choose from a palette of over 16 million colors and several preset lighting effects to reflect their own style and personality. They can synchronize the RGB lighting on ROG Gladius II with other Aura Sync-enabled products to complete the look of their gaming setup. Aura Sync lets users achieve perfect synchronized lighting harmony by pairing their Gladius II with ASUS motherboards and other compatible components; while quick and easy lighting synchronizationbetween ROG Gladius II and ROG Claymore can be achieved with a press of the latter’s ROG Sync hotkey[1].

ROG Armoury software lets gamers adjust settings to suit their style. Gamers can customize Aura RGB lighting effects, adjust performance and surface calibration settings, program and map buttons, and create profiles via an intuitive interface.

Built for home or LAN parties

ROG Gladius II has a 2-meter braided cable for desktop use and a 1-meter rubber cable to take to LAN parties. A detachable cable design provides easy cable management and lets users pack Gladius II easily without having to worry about bending and damaging the cable. A special locking mechanism secures the cable in place, and a quick-release switch at the bottom of Gladius II releases the micro-USB cable with one swift movement.

Gladius II is bundled with an easy-to-carry ROG pouch for convenient protection and portability on the go.
