In the absence of stock GPUs, Asus introduces a ROG Strix key with spinning fans

The lack of stock of graphics cards or GPUs has been driving PC gaming fans crazy for some time, mainly due to the crisis in the semiconductor industry (Sony and Microsoft also attest to this with their PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, respectively), in addition to the rise of the mining in the cryptocurrency sector, giving rise to a speculative market that has rarely been seen. Be that as it may, Asus seems to have an idea waiting for better times in the sale of graphics, not even as a joke. So much so, that it has presented the so-called ROG Strix TouchStone, a key for keyboards shaped like a graphics card, including three fans… that rotate!

Miniature Triple Functional Fan

Thus, this key with such a special design tries to emulate what would be a graphics card from the Asus ROG Strix series with its triple fan, so common in this type of mid-range GPU design. -high. But the best of all is that these three fans really work, turning when you drag your finger over their surface and causing a most curious effect. In addition, it contains translucent parts, so if the keyboard incorporates RGB lighting, this miniature graphic will also emulate the typical gaming light configurations.In the face of a lack of GPU stock, Asus introduces a ROG Strix key with spinning fans

And to top it all off, the product is delivered in a small box that mimics the packaging of a real graphics card, with its different little boxes inside and padded material. The key is made of polished aluminum alloy, incorporates laser-engraved logos and is compatible with Cherry MX switches.

All this for 399 yuan, about 55 euros to change; And it seems that, unfortunately for those who like to customize their equipment to the extreme, this very special product has been manufactured only for the Chinese market and there seem to be no plans for international distribution.
