Thrustmaster, the gaming accessory manufacturer, is thrilled to announce the arrival of the ESWAP X2, the next generation of their highly acclaimed ESWAP X PRO CONTROLLER gamepad. Building upon the success of its predecessor, the ESWAP X2 is designed to meet the demands of gamers seeking exceptional performance.
ESWAP controllers have long been regarded as the pinnacle of professional-grade gamepads, favored by competitive gamers at the highest level. With the introduction of the ESWAP X2, Thrustmaster aims to maintain the features that have made their controllers a favorite among gamers.
One standout feature of the ESWAP X2 is its Hot-Swap technology, which allows for easy replacement of the S5 NXG mini-sticks. These mini-sticks are for their precision in the world of esports, and the new version of the controller further improves their lifespan, ensuring an extended gaming experience.
In addition, the ergonomic design of the D-pad has been completely reworked to simplify and expedite activations. This means players can execute actions more swiftly and efficiently, giving them a competitive edge in intense gaming sessions.
Connectivity is also a priority with the ESWAP X2, as it includes a USB-C cable for optimal connectivity. This minimizes latency during gaming sessions, ensuring maximum responsiveness between button presses and in-game actions.
When it comes to responsiveness, the ESWAP X2 truly shines. The mechanical buttons provide super-responsive clicks that are 64% faster than standard membrane-based buttons. This enhanced responsiveness allows players to execute combos with lightning-fast speed, outperforming their opponents. With an activation distance reduced to just 0.01″ / 0.3 mm, players can expect next-level responsiveness from every button on the controller.
The D-pad on the ESWAP X2 is a standout feature as well. With its remarkable precision and exceptional responsiveness, players can eliminate the risk of misclicks during crucial moments. The minimal activation distance of just 0.02″ / 0.45 mm ensures that every input is registered accurately. Developed in collaboration with professionals in the versus fighting scene, the D-pad’s ergonomic design allows for smooth and seamless execution of diagonal inputs.
Customization is a key aspect of the ESWAP X2 gamepad. Thanks to its Hot-Swap technology, players can easily change the gamepad’s modules at any time, tailoring it to their specific gaming preferences. The FIGHTING MODULE, for example, is optimized for fighting games and adds two extra buttons for simplified combo execution. This flexibility allows players to create a 6-button configuration on their ESWAP gamepad, providing maximum control and a competitive advantage.
The ESWAP X2 also expands players’ options with its additional buttons on the back of the gamepad. These buttons can be directly remapped to any function, freeing players from the limitations of traditional gamepad buttons and offering a vast array of action options.
Furthermore, the ESWAP X2 empowers players to fully configure its sensitivity levels and settings. With the ThrustmapperX software, players have complete control over their gamepad, allowing them to create customized profiles for specific games or characters. They can also map and remap buttons, adjust the sensitivity curve of the analog mini-sticks, and even change the shape of the curve for the dead zones on the analog mini-sticks. The ThrustmapperX software also provides access to XBOX Game Pass Ultimate, giving players one month of free access to hundreds of games.
The ESWAP X2 is available for pre-order starting December 22, 2023, and will be commercially available on January 24, 2024, at a suggested retail price of £149.99 / $169.99 / €179.99. Additionally, the FIGHTING MODULE and D-IPPON D-PAD MODULE can be purchased individually for owners of an ESWAP gamepad (S / X / XR / X2) at a suggested retail price of £26.99 / $19.99 / €19.99.

latency: Technology latency is the time it takes for a computer system to respond to a request. It is an important factor in the performance of computer systems, as it affects the speed and efficiency of data processing. In the computer industry, latency is a major factor in the performance of computer networks, storage systems, and other computer systems. Low latency is essential for applications that require fast response times, such as online gaming, streaming media, and real-time data processing. High latency can cause delays in data processing, resulting in slow response times and poor performance. To reduce latency, computer systems use various techniques such as caching, load balancing, and parallel processing. By reducing latency, computer systems can provide faster response times and improved performance.
USB-C: USB-C is a new type of USB connector that is quickly becoming the industry standard for connecting devices to computers. It is a reversible connector, meaning it can be plugged in either way, and it is capable of transferring data at speeds up to 10 Gbps. It is also capable of providing up to 100 watts of power, making it ideal for charging laptops and other devices. USB-C is quickly becoming the go-to connector for connecting peripherals to computers, such as external hard drives, monitors, and printers. It is also being used to connect smartphones and tablets to computers, allowing for faster data transfer and charging. USB-C is quickly becoming the industry standard for connecting devices to computers, and its applications are only expected to grow in the future.
