    * Software may vary by product model.
    ROG GameFirst V technology maximizes throughput for your game! It prioritizes network packets for increased bandwidth for online gaming and streaming. The new multi-gate teaming function combines up to four gateways to ensure the very best online gaming experience.
    ROG GameVisual software provides seven preset modes for different game genres, plus loads of exciting multimedia and customization settings. ROG software engineers have fine-tuned each setting to deliver visual excellence that perfectly complements the game genre. First Person Shooter (FPS) mode, for example, enhances visibility in dark environments — so you’ll see details denied to your enemies, for a clearer shot with every pull of the trigger!
    With Aura RGB, it’s easy to customize the colors of the ROG Zephyrus M keyboard’s backlit keys, as well as the four zoned areas. Explore nine fun and fascinating illumination effects, such as Breathing, Color Cycle or Rainbow mode. Create individual key colors for every game to master its controls and even customize the front logo to match your mood or style.
    A lifetime subscription to XSplit Gamecaster Standard allows you to live stream and broadcast directly to internet streaming platforms, or make recordings for easy sharing online. It allows you to make in-game annotations to highlight what’s happening on screen. You can even interact with your audience while broadcasting on Twitch.
    Keep ROG Gaming Center at hand with the ROG app on your smartphone or tablet — free from Google Play™ and the App Store!
