ROG Announces Horus GK2000 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with a Built-in 32-bit Processor
Asus Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the Horus GK2000 mechanical gaming keyboard. The gaming keyboard Horus GK2000 has a built-in 32-bit micro-programmed control unit (MCU) and 4MB of onboard memory, plus an intuitive ROG user interface that allows users to customize macro and function keys for complex multi-key commands with just a single keystroke. ROG Horus GK2000 has a premium, high quality feel and features CNC-processed aluminum accents with a special topcoat finish. It has intricately-engineered ‘wings’ and an anodized keyboard plate with a brushed finish to give it an aggressive appearance. ROG Horus GK2000 also features a removable palm rest, 2-way adjustable feet, and a detachable stand for mobile devices.
Horus GK2000 utilizes Cherry MX Red mechanical switches, and features 4mm of key travel for tactile, responsive keystrokes. It is durable too, and has an expected lifespan of 50-million keystroke lifespan. Each individual key is backlit by red LEDs, and features ergonomically-shaped keycaps that are ideal for gaming or typing. Horus GK2000 features 100% anti-ghosting with N-Key rollover (NKRO) technology to ensure each keystroke is detected no matter how many other keys are pressed. The N-Key rollover function can easily be switched on or off via its own hotkey.
Horus GK2000 has LED-backlit keys with five preset default lighting modes and a sixth for user-customized settings. Users have the option to light up the entire keyboard, or limit the lighting to specific keys. Horus GK2000 has dedicated multimedia controls that put everything at the user’s fingertips — they can simply turn a dial to adjust volume, or change LED illumination effects without having to lift their hands off the keyboard.
There are two USB ports situated at the rear of the keyboard for easy connections to external flash drives and other peripherals; there is also a built-in audio port for headsets. ROG Horus GK2000 has its own specially designed neoprene carry case. This unique case has a prominent ROG logo and features a soft inner lining to protect Horus GK2000 from scratches. It even has internal compartments for users to store peripherals and other accessories.
