Finding great gaming kit that destroys your enemies but not your bank balance can be tough. That’s one of the great benefits of the ASUS TUF Gaming range of peripherals.
When you’re looking for the ultimate gaming keyboard, gaming mouse or gaming headset, of course you want incredible performance. But sometimes that performance requires you to compromise, so you have to juggle your need for speed with your desire for comfort, durability and price. With TUF, there’s no need to compromise.
TUF stands for The Ultimate Force, and it’s a collection of PC components and accessories designed specifically for the toughest challenges. TUF hardware is tested in the harshest environments to make sure it’s tough enough for the most demanding gamers, and TUF products have won stacks of awards for their power, for their durability and for their beauty.
The same combination of power, durability and design that makes TUF motherboards modders’ favourites is also available in TUF gaming peripherals. Whether you’re looking for a gaming mouse, a gaming keyboard or a gaming headset there’s a TUF solution. But which ones are best for you? Let’s find out.
TUF Gaming K3 Keyboard
Tough like a tank and completely customisable
PROS: Choose your switches; custom RGB lighting; macro and media keys
If you were to write a wish-list for your ultimate gaming keyboard, you’d end up with something very close to the TUF Gaming K3 Keyboard’s spec sheet. You want mechanical keys with a choice of clicky, tactile or linear switches? The K3’s got them. USB passthrough? That too. Programmable macro keys and per-key programmable RGB lighting? You bet.
It’s tough, too. Those keys are good for 50 million keystrokes and the cover is made from aerospace-grade aluminium. But being hard on your opponents doesn’t mean being hard on your hands. It’s supremely comfortable for even the longest gaming sessions and includes a detachable magnetic wrist rest for extra support and comfort during marathon gaming sessions.
TUF Gaming M3 Mouse
The high-speed mouse that’s always ready for duty
PROS: Very comfortable; very customisable; very tough
The TUF Gaming M3 Mouse was made for high-speed manoeuvres: with a 7,000 dpi optical sensor with 1,000Hz polling for pixel-precise tracking, two DPI buttons for on-the-fly sensitivity adjustment, seven tactile, programmable buttons and Teflon-coated feet for smooth moves it’s a superbly comfortable mouse for every kind of gamer: its compact, lightweight design means it’s great whether you prefer a claw grip or fingertip grip.
The M3 was made tough. Its specialised coating delivers exceptional durability, and its switches are rated for 20 million clicks so it’s always ready for duty.
It’s incredibly customisable too. We’ve already mentioned its programmable buttons; they’re accompanied by customisable Aura Sync RGB lighting, and the TUF M3 has onboard memory to store custom button configurations.
TUF Gaming H3 Headset
One headset to rule them all
PROS: Works with everything; amazing bass; crystal clear mic
If headsets had houses, the TUF Gaming H3 Headset’s one would be full of trophies. That’s because it’s won tons of awards for its exceptional comfort, superb build quality and brain-shaking 50mm ASUS Essence drivers for incredible, immersive in-game audio and fantastically deep bass. Its unidirectional microphone has been specially tuned for crystal-clear voice communication, and its intuitive controls make it easy to adjust the volume or mute the mic instantly. Best of all, it works with everything: phone, PC, mobile, Mac and of course consoles.
TUF Gaming P3 Mousepad
The ultimate surface for your M3 Mouse
PROS: Anti-fray stitching; accurate tracking; looks good too
Mousepads are not created equal, and yet some gamers who wouldn’t dream of compromising on hardware will happily plonk their mice on sub-standard surfaces. That’s why ASUS created the P3. Its super-smooth cloth surface has been specifically designed for accurate and responsive tracking, and its stitched edges means the P3 will be ready for battle long after lesser mats have become ragged and frayed. It looks pretty great too.
