Asus ROG Falchion Wireless Gaming Keyboard With Touch Panel Feature:
On Tuesday, Asus reveals the ROG Falchion, an ultra-compact wireless gaming keyboard with a touch panel for gamers. This keyboard has amazing RGB lights and also with Cherry MX mechanical switch keys. Furthermore, the unique touch panel on the left-hand side will excite gamers. Furthermore, it comes with a cover for “on-the-go protection,” in case you want to lug it around (to a LAN party or wherever). It’s an interesting collection of features, not least the touch panel. Not to be confused with the LCD screen, it’s basically a one-touch strip. The touch strip which you can use to “adjust personal settings and customize the controls”. I imagine most people would use RGB lighting or volume to make a fuss.
The keyboard connects to the PC via a 2.4GHz wireless dongle. According to Asus, this “gaming-grade” offers 1 ms response time, which means you don’t have to lag far behind the wired connection business for wireless connections.
Asus did not say which versions of the Cherry MX RGB key switch will be offered on its keyboard. Though one thing that looks good is the addition of arrow keys. These are not always provided on ultra-compact keyboards.
As far as battery life is concerned, Asus claims that the ROG Falchion lasts up to 400 hours, provided you turn off the RGB lighting. However, there is no mention of how long it will last, even if the per-key lighting is on.
ROG Falchion is currently only available in the US keyboard layout. ASUS has not yet officially announced the product as well as other keyboard layouts for other areas. However, as of this writing, there is no information on the prices and supply of ROG Falchion. So, you have to wait for this keyboard.
