The ASUS ROG Azoth gaming keyboard, which we reviewed last year, earned our Editor's Choice award due to its features, performance, excellent type-feel, and hot-swappable pre-lubed ROG NX mechanical switches (Linear). At Computex 2024, the follow-up is making a play to be one of the very best 75% TKL gaming keyboards available - and from what we've seen so far, it could very well hit those heights.

The ROG Azoth Extreme is every bit as customizable as its predecessor-hot-swappable switches, multiple layers of dampening, and gasket mounting are becoming the standard in the premium space - but it takes things to the next level. Underneath the keyboard, you can adjust the mounting to get the desired feel-smooth, spongy, or more tactile - all with the same switches.

Underneath is where you'll find magnetic feet that you can snap on or take off the keyboard to adjust the height, a stylish touch that adds to the premium feel.

The keyboard now boasts a full-color touch-screen OLED display in the top right, which can give you real-time stats from your PC, let you know how much battery life you've got left, and even provide real-time stats for the keyboard showcasing your current typing speed. The display unit we saw up close featured ROG NV Linear switches, with ASUS confirming that there's a Tactile option, too.

Of course, as hot-swappable, you can swap these out. Elsewhere, the build quality is excellent, with an aluminum top layer, a carbon fiber positioning plate, dampening foam, silicon, and more. It feels incredible to type with (and, we assume, game with) and even comes with a comfy silicon wrist rest - an underrated but welcome addition.

The ROG Azoth Extreme is wireless and covers 2.4 GHz, with wired and Bluetooth options. There's an included USB polling-rate booster offering true 8,000 Hz polling - which might be overkill for most applications, but hey, it's called Extreme. From the looks to the feel to the construction and features, this is shaping up to be a 2024 gaming keyboard to keep an eye on. We'll try to get a review unit as soon as they become available, alongside pricing and availability info, so stay tuned.
