ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces Moonlight White Gaming Peripherals

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced an all-new gaming peripherals lineup that channels the minimalist feel of monochrome through a striking Moonlight White color scheme. The ROG Strix Scope NX TKL 80%, tenkeyless mechanical RGB gaming keyboard, ROG Strix Impact II ambidextrous gaming mouse, ROG Strix Go Core gaming headset and ROG Cetra II Core in-ear gaming headphones are all now available in North America in this stunning colorway.

ROG has a long history of weaving Aura Sync into a huge ecosystem of devices to let gamers shine a light on their personalities through their gear - but many players also seek a minimalist look. That's why the ROG color palette is expanding to include the Moonlight White series, providing a commanding counterpart to the signature red-and-black color scheme.
ROG Strix Scope NX TKL Moonlight White
The ROG Strix Scope NX TKL Moonlight White is a compact, tenkeyless mechanical gaming keyboard with Xccurate Design - an extra-wide Control (Ctrl) key that's easier to feel and find in a frenzied FPS session. With a choice of ROG NX switches for optimal feel and reliability, an all-aluminium top plate for strength and style, and customizable Aura RGB lighting, Strix Scope NX TKL Moonlight White empowers gamers to play like pros and rise above the competition.

With a small footprint to free up worktop space for broader mouse movements, Strix Scope NX TKL Moonlight White is perfect for the lower sensitivity settings that slow the reticle for leveled-up aiming accuracy. The keyboard is topped with an aluminium faceplate for everyday resilience, and finished with a striking slash aesthetic that adds a touch of style.
ROG Strix Impact II Moonlight White
The ROG Strix Impact II Moonlight White is a lightweight ambidextrous gaming mouse that delivers smooth action and superb flexibility. It features pivoted buttons and a soft-rubber cable for fast, tactile clicks and unhindered glides. There's also a 6200 dpi sensor for pinpoint accuracy. In addition, Impact II Moonlight White is equipped with an exclusive, push-fit switch socket design to extend its lifespan, and a four-level adjustable DPI switch that makes it easy to vary sensitivity to match any gaming style or need.

ROG collaborated with professional gamers when designing Strix Impact II Moonlight White, resulting in a gaming mouse that is optimized for performance and comfort, in a mere 79 g (approx. ~2.8 oz) frame. The 6200 dpi sensor tracks at up to 220 inches per second (ips) and has a 1000 Hz polling rate, ensuring high precision, fast response and accurate control - all without a hint of lag. Impact II Moonlight White even includes five programmable buttons, allowing control to be tailored for different games or play styles.
The Strix Impact II Moonlight White shines from top to tail, with Aura RGB lighting integrated into the logo, scroll wheel and front, and with the leading LEDs projecting forward like headlights to illuminate the worktop battlefield. The lighting can be customized using a near-endless spectrum of colors and a range of dynamic effects, and up to three profiles can be stored onboard to take those preferences anywhere.

ROG Strix Go Core Moonlight White
The ROG Strix Go Core Moonlight White is a 3.5 mm gaming headset that supports all of the most popular gaming platforms, including PC, Mac, mobile phones, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch. Equipped with exclusive 40 mm ASUS Essence drivers with airtight chambers, Strix Go Core Moonlight White delivers incredibly rich, pure sound with optimized deep bass for immersive audio experiences. With an ergonomic, lightweight design for superb comfort and a swivel-fold mechanism for quick and easy portability, Strix Go Core Moonlight White offers the perfect balance of features to allow gamers to play without fatigue, wherever they go.
Certified by Discord and TeamSpeak, the Strix Go Core Moonlight White also comes with a detachable, unidirectional boom microphone that's tuned to make the wearer's voice stand out for clearer and easier communication with teammates.

ROG Cetra II Core Moonlight White
The ROG Cetra II Core Moonlight White in-ear gaming headphones feature ASUS Essence drivers made of liquid silicone rubber (LSR) for impeccable audio quality. The headphones allow users to enjoy gaming-grade sound with a wide variety of platforms, including compatibility with PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, ROG Phone 5, mobile phones, PCs Macs and Nintendo Switch. The included ear fins and ear tips are also made of LSR for added comfort.

Crafted from sleek, lightweight aluminium, the Cetra II Core Moonlight White has a striking, elegant look that is complemented with scratch resistance, elevating aesthetics and durability. It also benefits from a 90-degree connector that keeps the headphone cable out of the way, improving comfort during portable gaming.

Those keycaps on silver aluminum look fantastic, I must say. I wish ASUS made a "superlight" wireless ergo to complement the nice keyboard.

To me, it just looks like Asus is trying to copy Razer's "Mercury" line up.

I like it, but it resonates too much of Razer Mercury line.

They look nice now. My concern is in a year or two? Especially the kb and mouse. I cant imagine that pretty whitish color will remain that sexy after a few hundred gaming sessions!

At least both white and grey will go yellow so if you wait long enough, you can get everything in one color!

I like this stuff. That mouse looks very comfortable. The keyboard though... No ten-key? WTH Asus? You almost had me wanting to upgrade my setup..

That's an opinion. A lot of us regularly use the ten-key for data input. A lack of one is a huge dealbreaker. PC's aren't just for gaming...

Gee, thanks for the tip... What Asus should have done was not alienate a portion of their potential user base by excluding the ten-key. It was a stupid design choice. And yes, I get it, some users don't use the ten-key that much, but does it bother you if it's there?

No worries gents, this is Asus! It leaves them room to expand the product line. If these make the bean counters happy they will release a new mouse with 50 buttons and 5 to 10 variations of this keyboard and god only knows how many headsets. These are just the tip of the iceberg im sure ;)

Oh and dont forget about RGB!

It would be nice if they had included media & volume buttons too. What's the point of making an effort like this if you're not going to include full features?

I don't know...there's alot about this release that leaves me scratching my head.
Being that all of them are kind of basic, leads me to believe they are trying to meet a specific price point to gain early traction, possibly, maybe, who knows . Then again they are ROG gear after all, so you would expect high end, hardcore, gaming centric, far more capable gear if they are slapping the ROG moniker on them.
Maybe the color change has them pumping the brakes until they see some feedback from market research.

Yes. it does. And many others as well, or this category wouldn't even exist.

You're doing the same as an Nvidia user going to AMD product launches and saying "why does this exist? i like Nvidia!" - it's trolling and shitposting dude.

I don't see the parallel. Those are two different companies releasing two different products. It's more like if NVidia just chopped the xx60 line out of their lineup - like why?
The 3060 Ti isn't for all, but if you're buying a 3080 does it really matter if the 3060 exists or not? You're not buying it, but others will.
But what if you want to buy a 3060 Ti but it doesn't exist, won't you be a bit miffed?

Now replace 3060 Ti with ten-key and 3080 with ten-keyless.

EDIT:
Made meaning clearer.

It's a different product for a different audience, if you aren't that audience... why get worked up over it?

Musselsit's trolling and shitposting dude
No, it's not. It's an expression of preference and opinion about disappointment of a particular product. An example of a troll or shitpost would be if I said "ASUS sucks and I'll never buy their garbage." But that is not what I've been saying at all. I've been taking issue with a particular aspect of the keyboard design that does not meet with my satisfaction.
MusselsIt's a different product for a different audience, if you aren't that audience... why get worked up over it?
Just an FYI, manufacturers lurk these threads to gain insight as to user reactions to their products. If we don't express our thoughts, how are they to know that some of us WANT ten-key, media control and volume control buttons in our high quality, high priced keyboards? If you don't think that is a thing, have a chat with W1zzard, I'm very certain he will shed light on the matter.

Hi,
Exactly
But here you are getting worked up over a keyboard for 120.us when it's not worth 80.us at best
Wait for it the keypad release will be another 80.us lol

Oh sure bag out the price, it's high. Most TKL keyboards are.

But if you aren't interested in the TKL category it's daft to go on about that, when the full sized versions are a totally seperate category.
