RTX 3080 under $100? Impossible? Not if it’s an RTX 3080 keycap.
As you are familiar, the shortage of graphics cards isn’t diminishing, nor is their purchase price. Like any true gamer who wants to enjoy their favorite games, you can’t buy a powerful graphics card at a reasonable price for months, if not years.
Meanwhile, ingenious manufacturers added fuel to the fire at the expense of the gamers’ torment and started selling various pranks. One such example is the keycap for keyboards in the shape of sought-after and expensive graphics cards from the Asus ROG Strix series.
You can place an exciting keycap instead of the right Shift on the keyboard. Behind this idea is the Chinese company on the zFrontier website. The keycap is shaped like Asus ROG Strix gaming graphics cards, measuring 51 x 18 x 11 mm and weighing 34 g (0.07 lb).
Thanks to the aluminum, the keycap works solidly and with high quality, and the mobile fans are a special touch. You can install this keycap on all standard mechanical keyboards with CherryMX switches or clones.
The Asus ROG Strix TouchStone keycap is especially interesting with three small fans that you can even spin with your fingertips in moments of boredom or loading your favorite game. Of course, this cute accessory isn’t cheap as you might think because it costs as much as a solid mechanical keyboard.
You get a package that resembles a mini replica of the ASUS ROG Strix graphics card packaging. Very interesting but also expensive for one keycap.
Holyoops RTX3080 Right Shift Keycap
If you don’t want to pay over $ 60 for the ROG Strix TouchStone, there’s a cheaper keycap alternative in the form of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080. As the ad for this keycap says, if you can’t get the graphics card of your dreams, at least have it on your keyboard. Oh, how comforting.
The Holyoops Right Shift Keycap is also aluminum with 51.5 x 18.1 x 10 mm dimensions. Keycap looks like the mini Founders Edition NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 and is compatible with CherryMX mechanical switches and clones. The packaging isn’t as attractive as the Asus Rog Strix Touchstone, but the price is much lower. Also, you can spin a small fan in moments of leisure and think about getting the right graphics card.
