People in the UK may not be too familiar with the Aorus brand yet, but if you do a little digging you will discover that 'Aorus' is the gaming subsidiary from 'GIGABYTE', a more familiar name. Aorus have been in the international scene since 2014 and have released various gaming products that are now slowly penetrating into the UK market, so Aorus will be a brand to keep an eye out for.
The Aorus Thunder K7 has a rather unique design due to its modular, fully programmable numpad-come-macropad that can be attached to either side of the TKL keyboard, dubbed the '80% keyboard'. By swapping the numpad/macro pad to the left hand side, (right handed) gamers will benefit from having more space to move their mouse around. Should you not require a full keyboard or are gaming on-the-go, there is a separate USB cable that can attach to the 20% part (macropad) for stand alone use, making it an exceptional compact/transportable solution. The Thunder K7 ships with a wrist rest and sports the renowned CHERRY MX Red switches.
Inspired by the legacy and origins of an old breed of board games, we set upon a journey. Led and driven by the gaming nature that is in our blood, we made our way here. As told by the great ancestors of Egypt, victory, for generations, falls to those who are watched over by Horus. The bravery and wisdom inherited by pharaohs for generations have now been revived with AORUS.
