Ultrafast switches that utilise infrared technology are combined with a high-quality manufacturing process to produce one of the best gaming keyboards we’ve seen in ages.
We loved the original ROG Strix Scope with its top-notch build quality and straightforward approach to gaming keyboard design. The new Scope RX, then, is simply a refinement of that; taking lessons learned from the first keyboard and adding in some funky new light-powered key switches, all for a reasonable price.
That’s what the ‘RX’ part of the name means – this Scope packs the new ROG RX Optical Mechanical Switch from Asus, not dissimilar to the proprietary switches found in the Huntsman family of Razer keyboards. With lightspeed actuation joining the Strix Scope’s excellent aesthetic and manufacturing standards as a result, this is one of the best gaming keyboards. It looks and feels incredible.
