ASUS Showcases GeForce RTX 3090 ROG STRIX GUNDAM Edition

ASUS has held its Republic of Gamers (ROG) day, and at the event, there was a special graphics card. Spotted there was a GeForce RTX 3090 GPU in the form of ASUS ROG STRIX GUNDAM edition. With an appeal based on a famous anime series GUNDAM, ASUS has decided to launch a new product line made up of a motherboard and a graphics card. The new ASUS GeForce RTX 3090 ROG STRIX GUNDAM Edition features the same specifications as the regular RTX 3090 edition, just with an increased clock speed of 1890 MHz, three 8-pin power connectors, and a maximum power limit of 480 Watts.

The card features a white triple slot body with three fans cooling the heatsink. When it comes to the availability of this card, it is said to be a limited edition only sold to the Asian market. The price tag will carry a premium over the regular ROG STRIX model, with a cost of 16,999 Yuans (~2530 USD). The standard ROG STRIX model comes at a 1799 USD price tag, meaning that you will pay 730 USD more for this limited edition product. The availability is supposedly going to be even worse than with current cards, meaning that only a few people will get their hands on these if the current situation is any reference.

Its a very milquetoast limited/special/collectors edition card.

They could of done something really fancy like the old 'MSI REACTOR' on lightning and some hawk cards.

Cool concept, but 2350 usd. No thanks, for what this cost over the strix version of 3090. You can almost buy a brand new Ryzen 9 5950X for that ekstra money.

Apart from the colours and the RX78-2 marking, there is nothing Gundam at all about this card.

Looks awsome! Like a top Ferrari. 499 units built. Hardly anyone will ever see one. Almost no one will ever game one. Will look lovely in some bitcoin mine.

One of the better MS Paint job I've seen in a long time. It almost doesn't hurt my eyes when looking at it.


Oh... this is real? Eh....

For a limited edition that's pretty weaksauce. Now would be a great time to bring back ROG Mars series with a proper 600W power limit like Mars II had.

To think MSI got shat on for scalping their cards, asus is doing it in broad daylight.

100% just throw a different colourway on there and add 50% to the asking price. Clearly scalping, but every tech publication pisses in Asus' pocket so we won't hear a peep about it.

Quite sweet, but a decal or painting of the RX-78-2 or Barbatos in the backplate was mandatory. Come on, Asus.
