Asus has recently announced three new additions to its Cerberus lineup: the Cerberus gaming keyboard, Cerberus gaming mouse and Cerberus gaming mousepad. All three of the new Cerberus gaming peripherals will be paired with the earlier released Cerberus gaming headset to complete the whole “gaming peripheral” ecosystem.
Cerberus Gaming Keyboard
The Cerberus gaming keyboard comes with plenty of features that make it appealing to a handful of PC gamers. According to Asus, the gaming keyboard was manufactured using full SECC (Electrogalvanized cold-rolled steel) metal plate, which makes it “capable of handling long hours of intense gaming sessions”. Interestingly, the Cerberus gaming keyboard is said to be splash-proof. This is possible by having a special drain hole built within the keyboard to ensure water doesn’t get trapped inside the keyboard.
In addition to that, the Cerberus gaming keyboard is further equipped with 12 programmable macro keys that are easy to reach. Aside from that, the gaming keyboard comes with fully rubberised feet, which is standard for most gaming keyboards nowadays. Finally, the gaming keyboard features two lighting colour options: red and blue. It’s worth noting that the keyboard features a membrane switch type instead of a mechanical one.
Cerberus Gaming Mouse
The next product that was announced by Asus is the Cerberus gaming mouse. The ambidextrous gaming mouse features a full black design with a Cerberus logo illuminated in red. Besides that, the gaming mouse has an optical sensor (up to 2500 DPI) and a four-stage DPI switch along with an LED indicator to show the current DPI setting. The Cerberus gaming mouse also comes with rubber grips, which is great for gamers with sweaty fingers. It’s interesting to see companies still investing in gaming mouse that can be used with both hands; more choices for left-handed gamers.
Cerberus Gaming Mousepad
Of course, the gaming peripheral ecosystem wouldn’t be complete without a mousepad, which is why Asus has introduced the Cerberus gaming mousepad. According to Asus, the mousepad was manufactured with a textured surface that uses a heavily woven fabric. Interestingly, the mousepad features embroidered edges to ensure longevity.
Unfortunately, Asus did not provide any information regarding the prices of all three Cerberus peripherals. The availability of the gaming peripherals in Malaysia was also not mentioned.
