There are specific pieces of equipment that should be part of the standard toolkit of every gaming addict out there. The ROG Spatha manufactured by Asus is one such piece and a must-have for all true gamers.

The ROG Spatha impresses with its modern design that harkens back to a spaceship straight out of Star Trek. Sleek, slender, futuristic, sexy and powerful: these are the adjectives that best describe this awesome mouse. Also, the ASUS ROG Spatha has been specially designed for Microsoft’s operating systems, offering Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 compatibility. You can use it wirelessly or as a wired mouse to avoid worrying about running out of battery.

Asus’ newest gaming mouse sports 12 programmable buttons — including six just for the thumb — no doubt giving gamers the upper hand in MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) games. You can click as hard and as fast as you can: this mouse offers a lifespan of up to 20-million clicks. The large left and right buttons are separated from the body for responsiveness allowing you to better focus on the game.

ASUS’ ROG Spatha also features an Alps® encoder scroll wheel, Mayan-patterned rubber grip, an LED battery indicator, a magnetic charging station, all within a magnesium alloy chassis that will last a lifetime. The mouse fits perfectly in your hand thanks to its ergonomic design, giving you the perfect tactile feedback and response.

No matter what games you’re into, the 12 programmable buttons including six for the thumb will have you covered – even for MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) games. The large left and right buttons are separated from the body for responsiveness while different Japanese-made Omron switches offer different tactile-feel, up to 20-million click lifespan, and can be easily swapped out (extra switches come bundled). The Alps encoder scroll wheel provides smooth and accurate movement, vital for when cycling through weapons or the inventory. A 2-level dpi switch with light indicator is perfect for FPS (First Person Shooter) games where you want to zoom in and out instantly to snipe, horizontal (X) and vertical (Y) sensitivity can be customized independently to help keep the crosshair leveled for more headshot.

Other features include:

  • Specially-designed micro-USB cable prevents the cable dragging on the desk.
  • Special steel-gray non-stick coat and textured Mayan-stenciled rubber panels for an assured grip.
  • 8200DPI laser sensor and 2000Hz polling rate for extreme precision and response – even the slightest movement will be tracked.
  • Customizable LED light effects on the scroll wheel, side buttons and ROG logo from a wide range of colors.

ASUS has not yet revealed any information on the price tag or the availability of its newest mouse but given its capabilities, we expect it to be around $150. Pair this mouse with one these laptops for the ultimate in gaming pleasure.
