The ASUS ROG GK2000 HORUS gaming keyboard bears the name of the ancient Egyptian goddess Horus, which is often portrayed as a falcon and was considered a design inspiration for this mechanical keyboard equipped with high-quality Cherry MX Red switches, LED lighting, 32-bit processor and 4 MB onboard memory.
As if the divine influence were not enough, the ROG experts from ASUS personally lent a hand and of course promise an absolutely high-quality performance gaming product with a unique, stylish and gamer-oriented design. As a member of the Republic of Gamers, you definitely stand out from the crowd and are technically always one step ahead.
The case of the GK2000 HORUS has an impressive design and is made of three millimetre-thick, CNC-milled aluminium with a black anodised finish and brushed aluminium elements. The lateral "wings" are also reminiscent of the god Horus. It goes without saying that LED backlighting is also built in, which is illuminated in red and has six different effect modes in addition to the standardised lighting. In addition to a convenient smartphone holder, the keyboard also features a dual USB 2.0 hub, HD audio ports and a cool carrying case.
To meet the demands of hardcore gamers, the ASUS GK2000 HORUS is equipped with red Cherry MX switches. These high-quality keys have a lifespan of up to 50 million keystrokes - ten times longer than a conventional keyboard. The push-buttons are also particularly sensitive to touch and extremely reactive, so that the actions per minute (APM) can be increased to a maximum.
Cherry-MX Red Switches have a very light, barely noticeable pressure point and are characterized by a very low actuating force. This makes it also ideal for fast multiple clicks on ego-shooters, because a tactile pressure point is not necessarily necessary for ego-shooters, because the keys are also hit in the heat of the battle quite quickly and completely in succession.
The keyboard also features full N-key rollover, 100% anti-ghosting, and five dedicated, easy-to-reach macro keys for quick and easy customization of macro commands. A total of 80 macros for keyboard, mouse and media input can be stored in the 4 MB OnBoard memory, which in turn can be executed by the 32-bit processor. These, in turn, can be organized and stored together with LED settings in up to 10 user profiles.
The removable wrist-rest also provides the best possible comfort and optimal support during long gaming sessions, as it can be perfectly adapted to your preferences in two different positions. The multimedia buttons also complement the overall concept with the option of adjusting the LED backlighting and the volume by means of a selector wheel.
The scope of delivery also includes the intuitive ROG user interface. This provides easy configuration of storable profiles, button settings, LED lighting with effects and, of course, macros.…more
