A mouse is one of the indispensable tools for operating a PC on a daily basis, not only when playing games on a PC.
When used in games, it is sometimes quick, sometimes delicate, and requires high operability and precision, so there are many high-performance gaming mice available.
The " ROG Chakram " introduced on Saiga NAK the other day has everything you need in a gaming mouse, including a highly sensitive sensor, programmable joystick, and both wired and wireless connectivity.
However, its high price tag may have made it difficult for some people to afford.
For those people, the "ROG Chakram Core " is now available at a reduced price with wired connectivity only!
Wired connection only while maintaining high performance
The " ROG Chakram Core " has the same basic performance and construction as the "ROG Chakram", including sensors, joysticks, and a screwless modular design for easy customization and maintenance.
The major change is that the connection method is only wired via USB, and wireless connection is no longer available.
Since the wired connection eliminates the need for a battery in the mouse, the "ROG Chakram Core" weighs only about 97g, compared to about 122g for the "ROG Chakram".
For those who want a heavier mouse, a 13.6g weight is included, which can be adjusted to about 111g by removing the cover of the main body and attaching it inside.
One regret is that the "ROG Chakram Core" does not have a detachable cable, so the RGB lighting on the front of the unit is gone, leaving only the logo and the wheel area illuminated.
The "ROG Chakram" had a customizable logo, but the "ROG Chakram Core" has a fixed ROG logo.
This is a bit of a disappointment, as personalization is an important element of a gaming device.
Quite a bargain price
The "ROG Chakram Core" is scheduled to be released on Friday, October 30, 2020, at an open price.
The estimated market price is 8,980 yen (including tax).
The regular price of the "ROG Chakram" is 16,980 yen (including tax), which is almost half the price of the "ROG Chakram"!
It is rare to find such a high-performance gaming mouse at this price range, so this is a great device for those who are wired users or those who have been hesitant to purchase a mouse because of the price.
