TechXhub launches new SteelSeries peripherals in the Middle East

SteelSeries launched a new range of products, aimed at gamers and e-sports enthusiasts in the Middle East.

The gaming perhipheral company announced the launch of the Rival 3 gaming mouse, and Apex 3 and Apex 5 gaming keyboards, to customers in the Middle East region.

Rival 3

The Rival 3 is a full-fledged gaming mouse designed at an affordable price for gamers.

The Rival 3 is built of a hyper-durable polymer for incredible durability, in a lightweight 77g form factor. The Rival 3 features SteelSeries’ new TrueMove Core optical sensor. The TrueMove Core is a huge leap in sensor performance at this price range. Traditionally, gaming companies use regular desktop sensors in mice at this price point, but SteelSeries, in collaboration with PixArt, has built a brand-new gaming sensor just for the Rival 3. The TrueMove Core 8,500 CPI sensor was designed for precise performance with true 1-to-1 tracking. The Rival 3 also features switches that are rated for 60 Million  clicks and on-board memory to save up to five CPI profiles and is fully customizable through SteelSeries Engine.

The Rival 3 is available now for AED199 onwards.

Apex 3


The water-resistant Apex 3 is a gaming keyboard created by combining SteelSeries’ 10-zone RGB lighting, quiet gaming switches and anti-ghosting. The Apex 3 is IP32 water resistant to prevent damage from accidental spills. The Apex 3 uses SteelSeries’ new low-friction switches for near silent use and durability, with performance guaranteed for over 20 million keypresses.

The Apex 3 is available now in United Arab Emirates for AED379 onwards.

Apex 5

The Apex 5’s hybrid switches combine the smoothness of a membrane switch, with the added durability, performance and satisfying tactile click of a blue mechanical switch for a gaming experience

Built using the same cutting-edge technology as our Pro line, the Apex 5 also includes a magnetic wrist rest, aircraft-grade aluminum build, OLED Smart Display, media controls and volume roller, and customizable per-key RGB lighting.

The Apex 5 is available now in United Arab Emirates for AED649 onwards.

“There are so many gamers out there that are stuck using boring, traditional office peripherals for gaming,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO. “With these new products, we set office products in our sights and sought to retool our cutting-edge technologies and put them into products that are accessible for every gamer. No one should have to be stuck using run-of-the-mill office products for gaming,” he added.

“More than half a billion gamers live in the Middle East and Africa region” said Sachin Kapoor, vice president, Middle East, Africa, India and Emerging Markets, at Techxhub.

“The new range of products by SteelSeries that we now bring to the region are carefully designed with creativity and innovation from the ground up – and empower every gamer to adopt the high performance gear and play at their best,” he added.
