The Flare will also be available in one of the latest additions to the Cherry MX line up announced a year ago, the Cherry MX silver design which features a shorter actuation point of only 1.2mm and a maximum travel distance of 3.4mm; for reference the Cherry MX red switch has a 2mm actuation point and a 4mm total travel distance.

Asus is also adding the ROG Strix GL12 to its gaming desktop line.

The ROG Strix Flare is a new RGB (individually programmable) mechanical gaming keyboard. The ROG Spotlight can also be teamed up with the new ROG Aura Terminal which is essentially a quad channel addressable RGB controller.

Furthermore, it uses Aura Sync lighting, the same as the above gaming desktop, and offers a USB pass-through port, allowing gamers to connect a mouse (or other peripheral) via the keyboard.

Pricing for the ROG Strix Flare, ROG Aura Terminal, ROG Spotlight, and ROG Bezel-free Kit will be announced at launch.

Asus ROG has a couple of dedicated RGB lighting accessories.

This accessory lets players with multiple-monitor setups to visually eliminate the gaps where their displays connect, giving your setup the appearance of being one long, continuous monitor. Essentially, the kit consists of vertical lenses and mounts which are used to attach the monitors together (at an angle of 130-degrees), using clever light refraction techniques to make the monitor edges seem to disappear.
