ASUS has unveiled a new line of gaming peripherals under the Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand name that “delivers a minimalist monochrome feel with a vibrant Moonlight White color scheme.” The lineup includes the ROG Strix Scope NX TKL 80% keyboard, ROG Strix Impact II mouse, ROG Strix Go Core headset and ROG Cetra II Core in-ear headphones. According to the manufacturer, many players are also striving for a minimalist look, so it was decided to expand the ROG color palette with the Moonlight White series, “which is a powerful analogue of the corporate red and black color scheme.”
The ROG Strix Scope NX TKL Moonlight White compact mechanical gaming keyboard features an “Xccurate design” featuring an extra-wide Control (Ctrl) key. The aluminum top keyboard uses ROG NX Red, Brown or Blue switches with 45, 58 or 65 g actuation force and 1.8, 2.0 and 2.3 mm travel, respectively. In the version with the US layout, there are 84 keys, for the UK – 85, for Japan – 87. The computer is connected via USB 2.0 using a detachable 1.8 m cable with USB-A and USB-C connectors. The polling rate is 1000 Hz. The keyboard measures 356 x 136 x 40 mm and weighs 830 g. It is decorated with RGB backlighting. Up to five presets can be stored in the built-in memory.
ROG Strix Impact II Moonlight White is equally good for both left and right grips, featuring a 6,200 DPI sensor, four-step resolution switch, five programmable buttons and a scroll wheel. It is adorned with Aura RGB lighting. The left and right buttons use Omron switches with a 50 million key life. A USB 2.0 interface is used to connect to a computer. The length of the soft rubber cable is 2 m. The sampling rate is 1000 Hz. With dimensions of 120 x 62.5 x 39.5 mm, the device weighs 79 g.
The ROG Strix Go Core Moonlight White Gaming Headset is compatible with PC, Mac, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S and Nintendo Switch mobile devices and consoles using a 3.5mm cable. The headphones feature exclusive ASUS Essence 40mm drivers with sealed chambers, according to the manufacturer, delivering “incredibly rich, clear sound with optimized deep bass for total immersion.” The range of reproducible frequencies is declared equal to 20-40,000 Hz, the impedance is 32 Ohm. The headset is complemented by a unidirectional boom microphone. Its frequency range extends from 100 to 10,000 Hz, and its sensitivity is -45 dB. The headset measures 205 x 190 x 54 mm and weighs 252 g.
The ROG Cetra II Core Moonlight White in-ear gaming headphones also use ASUS Essence drivers, but this time with a 9.4mm diameter, made from Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR). The reproducible frequency range is 20 – 40,000 Hz, the impedance is 32 Ohm. The built-in omnidirectional microphone has a sensitivity of -40 ± 3 dB and a frequency range of 50 – 10,000 kHz. For connection, as in the case of the ROG Strix Go Core Moonlight White, a cable with a 3.5 mm jack is used. The earbuds weigh 18 g, and their dimensions are described by the expression 15.5 x 15.5 x 27.8 mm.
The ROG Strix Scope NX TKL Moonlight White keyboard is $ 120, the ROG Strix Impact II Moonlight White mouse is $ 50, the ROG Strix Go Core Moonlight White headset is $ 80, and the ROG Cetra II Core Moonlight White in-ear headphones are $ 60. ASUS ROG Moonlight White series devices are already available in North America. There is no information on sales in other regions yet.
No, the Apple M1 Max SoC is not capable of competing with the GeForce RTX 2080, but the performance is very high. There were tests of the new MacBook Pro in games
The GPU performance in the Apple M1 Max SoC exceeds 10 TFLOPS, which can be compared with the PS5 or GeForce RTX 2080. But the TFLOPS figure is not directly related to the performance in games. And now we have the opportunity to assess what Apple’s solution is capable of in games.
And it is really capable of a lot. In Tomb Rider, the top-end Apple platform performs at the level of the mobile GeForce RTX 3060. Yes, we are talking about the 70-watt version, that is, almost the slowest. Recall that the RTX 3060 for laptops has a power limit ranging from 60 to 115 watts.
However, we are still talking about a very productive mobile video card of the most modern generation. Yes, you need to wait for tests in more games to put together a more complete picture, but you can state the very high performance of Apple’s solution right now. M1 Pro, by the way, also looks decent. This is roughly the level of mobile GeForce RTX 3050 Ti or RTX 3050.
Of course, the MacBook Pro is not bought for games at all, since the situation with games on macOS is not easy. However, this does not prevent us from evaluating the new Apple SoCs simply in terms of their capabilities.
An offline game has appeared in the Opera gaming browser in case of an unstable Internet connection or network disconnection
Opera Software has announced the launch of an innovation for the Opera GX browser. As a reminder, Opera GX is being promoted as a browser designed specifically for gamers. The innovation is intended to brighten up the moments when Wi-Fi suddenly disappears for game lovers.
In this case, the arcade game Operius appeared in the browser, which can be played offline. Created with GameMaker Studio 2 engine, the game will automatically appear in the browser every time the connection fails. If someone wants to play Operius on a stable internet, they can simply type opera: // operius in the Opera GX address bar.
Operius was selected through a competition involving more than 900 games created in GameMaker Studio 2. As a result, Operius won a poll where more than 100,000 Opera GX and GameMaker users voted for eight games selected by experts.
Operius features retro graphics inspired by 1980s space arcade shooters and a soundtrack from Catonator. Multiplayer is available to players without the Internet: in order to do this, you need to enter the mode for two players and then share the keyboard with a friend.
