ASUS Republic of Gamers today announced the ROG Gladius optical wired gaming mouse. This highly-advanced mouse has been engineered for right-handed gamers who demand precision, ergonomic comfort, and a competitive advantage in first-person shooter (FPS) games. Designed with input from the world’s top gamers. We sought input from the world’s top pro gamers during initial design stages to get the right look and feel for the Gladius. Measuring 126 x 67 x 45mm and weighing just 116g, the Gladius has an ergonomically-designed chassis that perfectly fits all mouse grip types ranging from palm, claw, or fingertips; while tactile rubber side panels ensure a secure grip in the heat of battle. The Gladius also features a steel-grey finish with a special sweat-resistant coating that maintains a comfortable feel even during marathon gaming sessions. A total of six programmable buttons are available, with left and right buttons that are independent of the mouse chassis to ensure responsiveness. There are also two programmable slide-to-press side switches along with a scroll wheel with an Alps® encoder which provides a positive feel.
