Pink is a color that is rarely used for PC hardware, however over the last couple of months we spotted three manufacturers adopting pink designs for desktops, laptops, peripherals, and even an all-in-one cooling system. This week ASUS ROG has followed, and started sales of multiple gaming peripherals featuring pink with a grey color scheme.

The ASUS ROG PNK family of products includes the ROG Gladius II Origin PNK mouse, the ROG Sheath PNK mousepad, the ROG Strix Fusion 300 PNK headset, as well as the ROG Strix Flare PNK keyboard with Cherry’s MX Red or MX Brown switches. Instead of choosing bright pink color it once used for a ZenBook UX laptop, the company decided to go with rather soft accents of pink, which will be suitable for anyone interested.

Since we are dealing with ASUS ROG-branded hardware, all the products are equipped with addressable RGB LEDs that can be controlled using the company’s Aura software.

ASUS ROG’s PNK peripherals are currently available directly from ASUS in the USA for $39.99 (mouse pad), $99.99 (mouse/headset), and $179.99 (keyboard). All the products are marked as limited edition, so we do not expect wide availability.

    I guess I am the odd man out here and will say pink no thank you. They would look very nice if they also do these in other color sets as well not just the pink.

    Yes I have noticed the new Pink trend for computer stuff the last few months I guess it is like everyone just does the follow the leader and says me too me too kind of thing. Also what is up with ASUS using the ROG naming on pretty much everything they put out now days. The ROG branding was meant to be for the most upper end stuff that was made with better quality in mind and just better than their regular stuff. Now it seems even the run of the mill stuff gets the same branding as to better stuff. Hard to tell what is the best and what is not the best this way. I guess that is what they want though is to confuse everyone.

    Yeah, I'm like mr. neutral colors.

    Pink makes a statement, no two ways about it.

    Asus is marketing these for girls right? They are trying to bring more girls into gaming. Why no mention of this obvious reason. Last time I checked pink is a girls color. What the F*** anandtech! Reply

    First of all, pink isnt just for girls. Pink was historically a young boy's color as Red, associated with blood and war, was a man's color. Pink, being a lighter shade, was for boys. So your nonsense has no place here.

    Pink is IN right now, I'm a male and think that keyboard looks dope.

    Secondly, even if it were the case, why would you be upset that Anandtech didnt say "ASUS is targeting women"?

    Shoot me but it's "in" because every dude wants to identify as a chick and god forbid some company not cater to a niche demographic. Reply
