Asus Unveils Two ROG G-Sync Monitors, GTX 980 Ti Poseidon, Spatha Gaming Mouse

Amidst all of the announcements coming in at once at Computex, Asus also announced two new ROG-branded monitors, a new graphics card, and a new gaming mouse. These are the 34-inch ROG 3800R curved G-Sync monitor, the new ROG Swift PG279Q, the GTX 980 Ti Poseidon, and the ROG Spatha.

The ROG 3800R is, as mentioned, a curved display with G-Sync support. It boasts a 34-inch panel with a resolution of 3440 by 1440 pixels.

The ROG Swift PG279Q is a 27-inch display, which packs an IPS panel with a 2560x1440 pixel resolution. It also features a refresh rate of 144 Hz, which together with Nvidia G-Sync support aids it in producing extremely fluid and tear-free visuals.

To power these monitors, you may consider peeking at the ROG Poseidon GTX 980 Ti. The Poseidon series of graphics cards from Asus come with a very interesting cooler, which can cool the card on air and also be hooked up to a liquid cooling loop. You can then opt to use either just air cooling, just water cooling, or for some extra punch, both! Not only does this offer good flexibility, but it is also a nice failsafe in case your water pump were to go bust.

Additionally, Asus also had the new ROG Claymore keyboard on display, which packs Cherry MX RGB switches (in red, blue, brown and black variants). It supports up to 16.8 million colors per key, along with N-Key rollover. The macro keypad is detachable and can be placed on both sides of the keyboard, and it also has a built-in USB 3.1 passthrough port.

Last but not least, Asus also revealed the ROG Spatha gaming mouse. This mouse can be used wirelessly, but if you’re looking for the best response times and most reliable connection, you can also opt to connect it using a USB cable. It has LED lighting effects with 16.8 million color options in three areas, and it comes with a magnetic charging dock. Additionally, the mouse also has a customizable click resistance. Spec-wise, the mouse comes with an 8200 DPI laser sensor, can cover up to 150 IPS (Inches Per Second), accelerate at up to 30 G, and it has a 2000 Hz polling rate for extremely quick responses.

Asus did not reveal pricing or availability for any of the products.

    Now that's the way to do GFX water cooling for those that may be wary of installing their own WB's. No silly CLC stuff.

    Yea and all that yearly maintenance that goes with it. Who would want CLC. Those silly people.

    Lets not forget that cost. Yea, who would want a CLC.

    Those monitors will be awesome, for sure... but painfully spendy. Nice to see an ultra wide format getting some gaming love. That monitor paired with a 980Ti would definitely be a sight to behold.
