5.1.2023 | Asus announces new Xbox controller with tri-mode connectivity and a built-in OLED display
Asus is releasing a new Xbox PC controller later this year that has a built-in OLED display and a host of connectivity options for PC.
The ROG Raikiri Pro has a tiny 1.3-inch OLED display above the Xbox button that will display custom animations, battery or microphone status, and more. The OLED display (128 x 40 resolution) will largely be used for swapping profiles during games, or for checking charging or mic status, Bluetooth pairing, and running text or animated wallpapers.
This is also the first Xbox-licensed controller with tri-mode connectivity. That’s Bluetooth, a low-latency 2.4GHz RF mode, and wired USB-C. While it features the designed by Xbox branding, Asus describes the Raikiri Pro as a pro PC controller, and it only mentions connectivity to Xbox Series X / S consoles through wired USB-C. That could mean many of the pro features will only function fully on PC.
