ASUS offers ROG Horus GK2000 gaming keyboard

The Republic of Gamers (ROG) division of ASUS has presented the Horus GK2000 gaming keyboard. The new keyboard offers mechanical switches and impresses with its size – it measures 526.5 x 170 x 49 mm and weighs 1.7 kilograms. The reason for this unusual size is that the Horus GK2000 comes with tons of features and an extra sturdy chassis.

The new gaming keyboard by ASUS features a powerful 32-bit processor inside as well as 4 MB of internal memory that is used for saving settings and gaming profiles. The chassis of the keyboard is large because it is made of special type plastics plus various aluminum elements. Moreover there are certain keyboard components that can be removed, integrated LED lighting and adjustable keyboard feet.

The Horus GK2000 is based on mechanical Cherry MX Red switches with lifetime of 50 million presses. The keyboard has support for up to 80 macros as well as a special key that is used to adjust the LED brightness. Users will also find two built-in USB ports, audio jacks and a USB 2.0 interface in the Horus GK2000 gaming keyboard. Finally the new ASUS keyboard comes with a special carrying case that carries the ROG logo on the outside.

The price of the new Horus GK2000 is unknown but given all the features and accessories we expect the keyboard to sell for more than USD 100.
