ASUS x Gundam

ASUS has launched an exciting collaboration with the Gundam series to create special editions of the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080, as well as motherboards, power supplies, cases and accessories designed in the style of the white mobile suit or the Zaku of the Principality of Zeon. br>
Waiting for news on the live action film of Gundam produced by Netflix, this is undoubtedly an announcement that the many fans of the Sunrise weblog anime will welcome with joy, in the hope that the video cards in particular will not result from immediately unavailable.

"The collaboration between ASUS and SUNRISE combines the passion for the game and the great mechas, presenting the GUNDAM collection", we read on the official website of the initiative, where it is possible to view all the products and find out where to buy them.

"The design of the collection is inspired by the original RX-78-2 Gundam and Char's infamous MS-06S Zaku II, with motherboards, graphics cards, gaming cases, cooler all- in-one, gami monitor ng, peripherals, routers, clothing and devices. Build the best GUNDAM-themed gaming pc and enter the world of Newtypes. "

We will return shortly to the products of the ASUS x Gundam line with a detailed study, photos and technical characteristics of each device.

Asus' new Gundam-themed motherboards demand you pick a side: Gundam or Zaku?

Good news, Gundam fans: some of the Gundam-branded PC components Asus began selling last year in Asia have become available for purchase stateside (via Newegg), meaning you can finally pack your PC inside a case built like Char's Zaku II. 

However, if you're in the market for a new motherboard you will have to pick a side: Gundam for Intel, Zaku for AMD. Specifically, Asus has applied the classic RX-78-2 Gundam paint job to a special Gundam-themed edition of its Intel Z590 board, and released a special Zaku-themed edition of its Tuf Gaming AMD B550M board adorned in the deep red and black of Char's Zaku II.

You should know that Asus' Gundam-themed motherboards are a little pricier than the unbranded versions, at least on Newegg. Still, the prices aren't unreasonable, especially in light of the significant price fluctuations we're seeing in the PC components market due to ongoing global supply issues and chip shortages.

Newegg is also offering a few other items from the Asus x Gundam collaboration, including some T-shirts and a Zaku-branded version of Asus' RT-AX86U AX5700 gaming router. In addition to a crimson paint job, this Wi-Fi 6 router has performance-minded features like a special 'Mobile Game Mode' that Asus claims will decrease your latency while playing games wirelessly.

The full line of Asus x Gundam PC components includes more Gundam-branded routers, GPUs, cases, and even power supplies, as well as accessories like headsets and mousepads. Many of them are still not available stateside, but we hope to see more filtering into U.S. retailers going forward.
