Gaming mice have followed a similar standard for the past couple of years; comfy thumb pad, dpi adjustments, and more mouse buttons than you know what to do with. Oh, and RGB. But what if someone came along and said, “you know what that mouse needs? A joystick”. Well, that is just what ASUS did, and boy, did we not realise how much we needed it before now.
Gaming mice have long been lauded for their ability to enhance a gamer’s experience, from the DPI adjustments, to its design, and most recently, its weight. Though, what gaming mice have never really tried to embrace is something that we never thought would actually add any value – a joystick.
Yes, a joystick – the same thing you use on console’s gamepad. Something that usually replaces the function of WASD keys when jamming on a PC vs. a console, typically used for camera control and movement on console. So what could it possibly do on a PC, you might be wondering, and I wouldn’t blame you.
The ROG Chakram is not only defined by its use of a joystick, but by its all-around incredible use as a great wireless gaming mouse. Chakram uses a 2.4GHz network to connect to your PC, you can be assured of an instant and continuous connection, along with a PixArt 3335 sensor, to ensure every move you make is picked up, at a top dpi setting of 16,000.
The shortened, but taller, back-end and elongated mouse buttons makes a palm rest comfortable.
Analog mode offers a traditional 8-way joystick that you would find on a console gamepad, which can be excellent for movement in flight sims.
Without illumination, the ROG Chakram supports up to 79 hours (you read that right) of play time...
