ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces GM50


Gaming mouse pad with special-weave premium cloth construction and low-friction coating improves tracking performance of any optical or laser mouse

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the GM50 mouse pad. The ROG GM50 has a special-weave premium cloth exterior with a low-friction, textured surface that improves the tracking performance of any optical or laser mouse for increased accuracy and precision. The 3.5mm-thick rubber pad provides a comfortable surface for gamers and has a non-slip rubber base that secures it to any surface. Bearing the classic black and red ROG colors, the GM50 features a durable design with stitches that resist fraying. A loop in the corner of the pad prevents mouse cables from getting tangled; while a special ROG wrist band can be used to roll up the GM50 when not in use.

Textured mouse pad for gaming precision

The ROG GM50 features a special-weave premium cloth construction with a lab-tested low-friction coat for smooth mouse control over its textured surface.The special weave construction of the GM50 provides a consistent horizontal and vertical feel throughout the mouse pad. To ensure it withstands the rigors of gaming, the GM50 utilizes an anti-fray sewing method for added durability.

The GM50 bears the classic ROG black and red color scheme, with the upper surface being pure black for precise mouse-sensor-tracking for FPS and RTS games. An ASUS Design team study found that gamers make more horizontal mouse movements than vertical ones and so designed the GM50 with an ideal ratio of 16:10 to give users a large usable area measuring 38 x 28 cm. A cable loop on the top left hand corner of the mouse pad prevents mouse cables from getting tangled during frantic gaming skirmishes.

Durable, ergonomic design

User ergonomics have been taken into account as well, with the ROG GM50 undergoing stringent tests to ensure it meets exacting quality standards. Its 3.5mm-thick soft rubber interior provides users with a comfortable feel during marathon gaming sessions. The surface of the GM50 has been treated with an anti-microbial coating that helps eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria for a healthier gaming environment. The GM50 also comes with a special silicone-rubber ROG wrist band which can be used to roll up the mouse pad when users take it to gaming events or LAN parties.
