It features Cherry MX RGB switches to give you precise and responsive keystrokes and individually-programmable backlit keys with Aura sync RGB LED technology for unmatched levels of personalisation. This 100% anti-ghosting keyboard has N-Key rollover technology, on the fly macro recording, and dedicated hotkeys for exclusive ASUS motherboard cooling and overclocking controls. ROG Claymore gives you the winning edge in the digital battlefield.
Play it your way
ROG Claymore's detachable keypad* can double as a macro keypad during gaming. This unique feature lets you use your mouse with your dominant hand, with macros at your other hand's fingertips.
*Detachable keypad cannot be used independently. It must be connected to either side of the main keyboard.
ASUS Aura – Let there be light
Fire up Aura and enjoy a mesmerizing light show on ROG Claymore's individually-customizable backlit keys, and get creative with its palette of over 16 million colors. You'll also be able to sync your customized light effect with the ever-growing range of Aura-enabled gear.
Every Keystroke Counts
ROG Claymore features Cherry MX RGB switches, 100% anti-ghosting with N-Key rollover (NKRO) technology, fully programmable keys and on the fly macro key recording to ensure you always get the winning edge.
- Cherry MX RGB switches
German-made Cherry MX RGB Red switches give you tactile, responsive keystrokes and unmatched 50-million-keystroke durability.
- Switch: extremely fast and linear response
- Actuation distance: 2.0mm
- Actuation force: 45g
- Anti-ghosting with N-Key rollover
ROG Claymore features 100% anti-ghosting with N-Key rollover (NKRO) technology to ensure each keystroke is detected no matter how many other keys are pressed — so all your multi-keystroke commands are logged.
- Repeat acceleration
Repeat acceleration is the rate at which a letter repeats itself when you hold a key down. You can adjust repeat rate to suit the situation at hand — keep it at the default rate for typing, or increase it for some rapid-fire action.
Unlimited personalization and customization
You can save up to six user profiles (5 customized + 1 default profile) on ROG Claymore's built-in flash memory on the go. The intuitive ROG Armoury lets you customise keys, lighting and macro settings. You can even track statistical data like how many keystrokes were made during a game.
All in sync
ROG gives you exclusive Aura Sync options and additional features when you pair ROG Claymore with an ASUS ROG motherboard, graphics card and more. ROG Claymore's hotkeys allow you to control your ASUS motherboard fan speed and overclock the system.
- Perfect lighting in sync
Aura Sync takes RGB lighting beyond the checkbox, combining and controlling the LEDs of all your Aura-enabled products from a single application to achieve perfect, synchronised harmony. Aura lets you sync light effects across your motherboard, ROG Claymore and the ever-growing portfolio of Aura-enabled products. You can choose from an array of LED effects and can even use ROG Claymore's backlighting to reflect CPU temperature.
