Four ergonomic styles via changeable top covers

Proper mouse fit is crucial to avoid hand, finger, and wrist strain during marathon gaming sessions. ROG Strix Evolve offers all types of gamers the best fit and comfort with modular top covers that can be changed to enable four different ergonomic styles — ergonomic right-handed, ergonomic left-handed, ambidextrous high-profile, and ambidextrous low-profile. The top covers attach magnetically to Strix Evolve, allowing them to be changed easily on the fly, so gamers can quickly find the style that works best for them.

Flexible customization options

ROG Strix Evolve has customizable ASUS Aura RGB lighting technology that lets gamers choose from millions of colors and four different lighting effects to create their own unique look. Built-in Aura Sync support enables lighting synchronization between Strix Evolve, ASUS motherboards, and other Aura Sync-enabled products to create stunning, unified lighting themes for a system that really shines. Additionally, gamers can quickly synchronize lighting between Strix Evolve and the ROG Claymore keyboard with a press of the keyboard's dedicated ROG Sync hotkey . The intuitive ROG Armoury software gives gamers complete control over Strix Evolve's operation, including the ability to customize Aura RGB lighting effects, create button mappings, adjust performance and surface calibration settings, save mouse profiles, and more.

Gaming-focused design

The design of ROG Strix Evolve puts gamers’ needs for performance and optimal gaming experiences first. Built with high-quality Omron switches that are rated to at least 50 million clicks, Strix Evolve has a durable design built to withstand intense gaming and provide years of dependable service. Its 7200 DPI optical sensor tracks as fast as 150 inches per second (IPS), and has a maximum of 30g of acceleration and a 1000Hz USB polling rate for fast and accurate movement. A DPI switch lets gamers make on-the-fly sensitivity adjustments to suit different gaming scenarios without the need to open a separate software window that takes them out of the action. Mayan-inspired rubber side panels enhance Strix Evolve's stylish gaming aesthetics while also providing a more secure and comfortable grip — especially for gamers who lift the mouse while gaming.
