NVIDIA selling its NVLink bridge at $80 (roughly the price of an entry-level motherboard) was sure to lure motherboard makers to design their own "premium" NVLink bridges. The first third-party bridge comes from ASUS. The new ROG-NVLink bridge is more functional than NVIDIA's bridge, the LED illuminating the company's ROG logo on the bridge does 16.7 million colors, and can be controlled by ASUS Aura Sync RGB software. The top of the bridge features a combination of glossy acrylic, matte aluminium, and brushed aluminium. The bridge comes in 3-slot (2 slots between cards) and 4-slot (3 slots between cards) spacing sizes. The company didn't reveal pricing.
