Asus announced a range of gaming products under the TUF brand at the ongoing Computex 2018. TUF Gaming now introduces the M5 mouse, K5 keyboard, H5 headset, GT501 chassis and the FX10CP desktop.
The first up in the range are gaming keyboard K5 and mice M5. The K5 keyboard is splash-proof and can withstand 60ml of liquid spill. The keycaps are also covered by three layers of paint. Under each cap, Mech-Brane switches use a specially tuned membrane to mimic the feel of a mechanical design. Five-zone Aura Sync backlighting stretches across the keys, powering a personalized array of colors and effects that can be easily synchronized with the M5 mouse. TUF Gaming M5 is coated in durable paint that stands up to heavy use. They’re rated to survive 50 million clicks. All the buttons are programmable with functions or macros using the Asus Armoury II software, which saves settings for up to three profiles directly on the mouse’s internal memory to make them available on any machine.
For the sound, the TUF Gaming H5 headset is designed with a focus on durability, style and comfort. Each ear cup contains a 50mm Essence driver backed by an airtight chamber that improves sound quality. A removable boom hangs down from the left with an analog mic for squad communications.
The GT501 chassis is made up of steel with plastic limited to pieces for front-panel connectors and the base of the front face. A sheet of smoked tempered glass provides a stealthy window into the battle station and woven cotton handles make it a simple transport to LAN parties. Besides this, the GT501 features adequate room for fans and radiators. It also includes trio of high-flow 140mm PWN fans.
Besides just peripherals, the TUF gaming systems also offer gaming desktops and laptops. The TUF Gaming FX504 laptop offers upgrades in key areas necessary for gamers to scale up their configurations. On the stationary front, the TUF Gaming FX10CP desktop features Intel Core i7-8700 six-core CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics.
The new TUF Gaming peripherals will arrive in Q3 2018.
