Gaming peripherals weren't forgotten, of course. For starters, ROG Delta is the latest ROG gaming headset (with circular-rainbow RGB lighting effects) and features a Hi-Fi-grade ESS quad-DAC for extremely clear gaming audio, thanks to the ASUS Essence drivers with audio signal diversion technology design to further improve sound quality. It uses USB-C connectivity which is ideal for mobile gaming which makes it the perfect match for ROG Phone.
A new RGB gaming mouse pad called ROG Balteus Qi was introduced and it has a hard surface optimized for precise tracking and Qi wireless charging. ROG Gladius II wireless gaming mouse with dual wireless connectivity via 2.4GHz and Bluetooth also showed up, and finally, ROG Strix Chassis with an aluminium and smoked-glass design to support for addressable AURA Sync lighting technology.
