JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, May 16, 2022 — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced a comprehensive ROG x EVANGELION collaboration centered around EVA-01, the flagship mecha of the manga and anime series known around the world. DIY PC builders will be able to assemble a high-end PC featuring EVA-01’s distinctive purple-and-green theme and a variety of artwork directly from the Evangelion universe, so that they can fashion their very own “NERV command center.” Options will include a unique ROG Maximus motherboard, two ROG Strix GeForce RTX™ graphics cards, a ROG Ryujin II 360 AIO cooler, and other top-shelf ROG gear.
ROG MAXIMUS Z690 HERO EVA Edition Motherboard
The ROG Maximus Z690 Hero EVA Edition is covered in the classic purple and green of the EVA-01 and is similarly well-equipped. Robust cooling and power delivery are poised to push the latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors to the max. An A.T. Field design around the CPU socket and polymo-lighting on the I/O cover that switches between EVA-01 normal and berserk modes is a further aesthetic treat.
ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3090 and 3080 EVA Edition Graphics Cards
The EVA Editions of the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090 and ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3080 come equipped with a myriad of performance-enhancing features. Aesthetic cues from EVA-01 cover the shroud and backplate, and the iconic synchronization effect is displayed on the front ARGB panel.
ROG Ryujin II 360 ARGB EVA Edition AIO Cooler
From end to end, the ROG Ryujin II 360 ARGB EVA Edition embodies the Evangelion spirit. A gunmetal pump cover surrounds a 3.5-inch screen that displays vital stats and customizable GIFs. Meanwhile, reinforced tubing pipes coolant into a radiator loaded with three NERV-styled ARGB fans, ensuring exemplary stability in the heat of battle.
ROG THOR 1000W Platinum II EVA Edition Power Supply
The ROG Thor II Platinum EVA Edition wears an EVA-inspired skin and wields component and cooling upgrades that enable the lowest noise levels – even during the most demanding skirmishes with the opposition.
ROG Strix Helios EVA Edition Chassis
The ROG Strix Helios EVA Edition is a premium mid-tower gaming chassis with three tempered-glass panels, a refined aluminum frame, and integrated front-panel RGB lighting. Interior and exterior details have been fashioned to match the aesthetics of the EVA-01 and house the other ROG x EVANGELION components, making it the cornerstone of the collaboration.
ROG Strix XG27AQM EVA Edition Monitor
The ROG Strix XG27AQM EVA Edition is handsomely clad in the EVA-01’s purple and green color scheme. With an overclocked refresh rate of 270 Hz and a speedy 0.5 ms (GTG) response time, users will experience an incredibly fluid view. The 27-inch display also covers 97% of the DCI-P3 color space, offering a full representation of wide-gamut media.
ROG Rapture GT-AX6000 EVA Edition Network Router
The ROG Rapture GT-AX6000 EVA Edition features cutting-edge wireless technology, antennas styled like the EVA-01’s shoulder plates, and a control app with a UI design fashioned after a visible A.T. Field.
ROG Delta S EVA Edition Gaming Headset
The ROG Delta S EVA Edition headset encapsulates a hi-fi-grade ESS 9281 QUAD DAC™ and ASUS AI Noise-Canceling Microphone within a lightweight shell that features EVA-inspired purple-and-green aesthetics and customizable RGB lighting. The total package weighs in at just 300 grams, putting comfort on equal par with impactful sonics and pristine comms.
ROG STRIX SCOPE RX EVA Edition Keyboard
The ROG Strix Scope RX EVA Edition proudly wraps an EVA-inspired purple-and-green aluminum case around a full complement of ROG RX optical mechanical switches. This formidable combo consistently provides wobble-free keystrokes, a near-zero debounce delay, plus IP57 waterproofing and dust resistance for reliable deployment throughout prolonged campaigns.
ROG Scabbard II EVA Edition Mouse Pad
Combining contrasting NERV and EVA-inspired design elements on a nano-coated surface that repels water, oil, and dust, the ROG Scabbard II EVA Edition prominently displays your allegiance and provides a robust foundation for the ROG Keris Wireless EVA Edition mouse.
ROG Strix Arion EVA Edition SSD Enclosure
The ROG Strix Arion EVA Edition portable SSD enclosure features heat protection optimizations and blistering connection speeds, making it ripe for quick data backups and secret missions behind enemy lines.
ROG x EVANGELION T-Shirts and Sweater
The ROG T-Shirt EVA Edition and ROG Sweater EVA Edition are made of cotton for a naturally soft and cool feel, with a reinforced anti-wrinkle neckline and EVA-inspired design. The T-shirts will be available in black or white, and each will feature a different design on the front and back.
