ASUS ROG CHAKRAM X
If there This mouse is the one for you, if there are any real mouse fans out there. Everything you could possibly imagine is included in this magnificent beast. The optical sensor can handle up to 36,000 DPI and a polling rate of up to 8,000Hz when connected through USB-C, which are insane specifications. That’s insane numbers territory, and it gives the Chakram X a seamless accuracy that is unrivalled.
With wireless, you can choose between 2.4GHz and Bluetooth, and you should expect to get about 150 hours of use out of each. With the RGB effects off, the wireless can run for about 150 hours on a single charge, but in our testing, it looked so darn good at night that we felt the urge to keep it on. Wireless is available in 2.4GHz or Bluetooth flavours. It supports wireless Qi charging. The main drawback is that it requires the Armoury Crate app, our least favourite Asus product, in order to operate fully.
There are interchangeable switches, and there are more in the package. Since mouse switches are a common component and are really affordable, this one is incredibly simple to customise. I thought the switches that came with it were excellent. There are 11 programmable buttons in all, including a thumb joystick button on the side. Too much, me? The joystick, which I personally didn’t use much, may be hidden to disappear if you feel the same way. I’m confident that very dedicated players will find use for it. Although it seemed a touch hefty (127g) for quick flipping in an FPS, the Bugatti Veyron isn’t specifically designed as an esports weapon, so some bulk is to be expected.
The ROG Chakram X‘s innovative joystick design enables you delegate keyboard instructions to your right hand and may be utilised in analogue or digital mode depending on your preferred playing style. For greater reach and control, the bigger joystick is placed closer to the palm and has a concave form.
