ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless Gaming Keyboard

ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless Gaming Keyboard

TAIPEI, Taiwan, May 30, 2023 — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the Strix Scope II 96 Wireless gaming keyboard. Offering outstanding versatility, this compact keyboard features a 96% layout that retains all of the function and number keys found in a standard 100% keyboard, packed in a space-saving design. Gamers can pair the Strix Scope II 96 Wireless with up to three devices via Bluetooth®. Users also have the option to use RF 2.4 GHz with ROG SpeedNova wireless technology and Omni Receiver, or a wired USB connection. Pre-lubed, hot-swappable ROG NX Snow mechanical switches provide fast actuation, refined and linear keystrokes, and improved key stability. Built-in sound-dampening foam and a switch-dampening pad absorbs pinging noises and echoes to improve acoustics of the keyboard. Typing feel is exceptional as well, with pre-lubed, low-friction keyboard stabilizers enabling smoother keystrokes and stability for longer keys. The switches are topped with durable ROG PBT doubleshot keycaps or UV-coated ABS keycaps that offer premium feel and shine resistance. The Strix Scope II 96 Wireless will soon be joined by the Strix Scope II and Strix Scope II RX full-size gaming keyboards.

Exceptional typing experiences

The Strix Scope II 96 Wireless is the first 96% ROG keyboard to incorporate ROG NX Snow mechanical switches that utilize plastic composites to provide ultrasmooth keystrokes. The top housings of the switches are made of polycarbonate (PC), while the stem and bottom housings are made of polyoxymethylene (POM) composite and POM respectively. The walled stem of each switch enhances key stability and prevents dust intrusion. The switches are specially tuned and pre-lubed at the factory to ensure solid keystrokes and “thocky” sound. Plus, the switches are topped with durable ROG PBT doubleshot keycaps or UV-coated ABS keycaps that offer premium feel and shine resistance. If preferred, gamers can swap and install1 their preferred switches for a customized feel.

Other enhancements include silicone dampening foam for the bottom housing, along with another layer of dampening above the printed circuit board assembly and integrated switch dampening pads underneath the switches to improve keystroke acoustics.

The Strix Scope II 96 Wireless Keyboard includes a multifunction button and scrolls for media playback, volume, and keyboard lighting. Plus, the F1–F5 keys are pre-programmed as hotkeys for Xbox Game Bar and recording functions.

1 Even though the switches are hot-swappable, it is not recommended to swap out switches when the keyboard is on to prevent short circuits.

Versatile tri-mode connectivity

ROG SpeedNova wireless technology offers over 1,500 hours of stable, uninterrupted near-zero-latency gameplay in 2.4 GHz RF mode (with RGB and OLED off). The ROG Omni Receiver enables multiple wireless connections with compatible devices with a single USB dongle, without compromising performance. Gamers can also use Bluetooth to connect to three devices simultaneously, or charge while playing in wired USB mode.
