At its ROG Day 2020 event, ASUS unveiled a number of GUNDAM-themed products, including the flagship GeForce RTX 3090 ROG STRIX GUNDAM graphics card, which has a very stunning design theme.
ASUS unveils stunning GeForce RTX 3090 ROG STRIX GUNDAM Edition video card, priced at around $ 2,500
The ASUS GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card ROG STRIX GUNDAM Edition is the pinnacle of ASUS’s lineup in its GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card. Although it features the same features as the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card, what makes this option special is its GUNDAM themed design, which looks absolutely stunning. In addition to the GeForce RTX 3090 ROG STRIX GUNDAM, ASUS has introduced a range of other products that include TUF Gaming graphics cards and boards based on the Z490 and B550 chipsets (via Videocardz / Momomo_US / Harukaze5719).
ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3090 GUNDAM Edition graphics card
In terms of card design, the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3090 GUNDAM Edition graphics card looks quite impressive with a more aggressive look that comes with three axial-tech fans with 13 fan blades and a massive heatsink under the hood. This cooling design comes in a 2.9 slot-shaped factor, which is just a cooler way to say a 3-slot design. The graphics card comes with a nice-looking back plate that covers the entire length of the card and even extends beyond the PCB. A small cut in the back helps to expel air from behind.
The front of the custom card has a two-tone design with bezels that appear to be made of aluminum, expanding and giving the card a more premium feel that looks similar to ASUS’s Poseidon range. The radiator below is made of a large stack of aluminum fins that uses at least 6 heat pipes.
ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3090, ROG STRIX 3080 and ROG STRIX 3070 graphics card display options will include a triple DisplayPort 1.4a and a dual HDMI 2.1 port. The card will definitely have a factory overclock similar to the ROG STRIX OC, which will put the card at 1890 MHz with a maximum TDP (Power Limit) of 480W. In addition, the ASUS GeForce RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 ROG STRIX will have triple 8-pin power connectors, while the ROG STRIX RTX 3070 will have dual 8-pin connectors.
ASUS mentions a price of 16,999 Chinese yen for the graphics card, which makes it about $ 2,500. The card is a limited option that will have small quantities and will be exclusive to the Asia-Pacific market. Given that the GeForce RTX 3090 already has a small stock, the GeForce RTX 3090 GUNDAM Edition would be hard to find.
ASUS also introduced several hardware products and peripherals that feature the ZEON and EFSF faction themes, which you can see below. We already saw the ASUS ROG Maximus XII Extreme Z490 Gundam Edition motherboard a few days ago, which the Chinese media provided a better look today.
