Asus Republic of Gamers announced that it has enhanced the Horus GK2000 keyboard and added RGB lighting system.
The original Horus GK2000 was launched in early 2016. However, the rapid development of the gaming hardware industry made last year’s model somehow outdated as it features LED red lighting only. That is why the Taiwanese hardware giant decided to replace the LEDs with the multi-colored phenomenon.
It is important to note that the updated keyboard allows users to customize the lighting effects and the behavior of each key via the software. According to information released by ASUS, the ROG Horus GK2000 RGB enables users to choose the tempo and the direction of some of the numerous in-built effects.
ASUS also confirmed that “The expanding Aura SDK will also give third-party developers the ability to utilise the lighting to communicate system stats, notifications, game-specific functionality and more.”
Apart from the lighting system, the manufacturer has made some mild upgrades. The ROG Horus GK2000 RGB now has 8MB memory that players to use the saved settings on any PC without downloading and installing any software.
As for the keys, ASUS opted for Cherry MX RGB switches that offer 50 million keystrokes and 4mm of key travel. The keyboard also comes with two USB ports, as well as jacks for headphones and microphone, 100% anti-ghosting capabilities, N-key rollover, a smartphone tray, and detachable palm rest.
At the time of writing, ASUS has not provided information about pricing and availability. According to unconfirmed sources, the ROG Horus GK2000 RGB will cost $199.
