The Asus ROG Azoth could just be Asus’ most refined pre-built keyboard yet. Packed with some features typically found on custom keyboards, the Azoth even has an OLED display on the top right corner.
At a glance, the ROG Azoth is a 75% keyboard with a gasket-mount design, which is typically only found on custom keyboards. However, it still offers a relatively stiff typing experience, which can be attributed to the use of silicone gaskets instead of a softer material – more on this in the full review.
Other features of the ROG Azoth include wireless support via a 2.4GHz dongle or Bluetooth, a hotswap PCB with three choices of ROG NX switches (linear, tactile, clicky), three layers of dampening foam to reduce case ping, and double shot PBT keycaps. Oh, the keyboard is bundled with a lube kit too, which includes a small bottle of Krytox 205g0, a popular lube in the custom keyboard hobby.
Unfortunately, there are no details on the pricing and availability of the ROG Azoth at the moment, though an Asus representative told us it would sit around the RM1,000 price point. Nonetheless, stay tuned for our full review of the Azoth!
