At the ROG Day event in 2020, ASUS showed off a range of GUNDAM-themed products, including the flagship GeForce RTX 3090 ROG STRIX GUNDAM Edition graphics card, which has a very stunning design theme.
ASUS unveils stunning GeForce RTX 3090 ROG STRIX GUNDAM Edition graphics card, priced at around $ 2500 US
ASUS GeForce RTX 3090 ROG STRIX GUNDAM Edition graphics card is the top of the line variant from ASUS in its GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card. While it has the same specifications as the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card, what makes this variant special is its GUNDAM design that looks absolutely stunning. In addition to the GeForce RTX 3090 ROG STRIX GUNDAM, ASUS also unveiled a number of other products that include TUF Gaming graphics cards and cards based on the Z490 and B550 chipsets (via Videocardz / Momomo_US / Harukaze5719).

In terms of card design, the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3090 GUNDAM Edition graphics card looks quite impressive with a more aggressive look, coming with three axial technology based fans with 13 fans and a solid heat sink under the cover. This cooling design comes in a 2.9 slot form factor, which is just a cooler way of saying 3-slot design. The graphics card comes with a nice back plate that covers the entire length of the card and even extends beyond the printed circuit board. A small cut in the back helps push air out of the back.
The front of the custom card has a double-colored design with frames that appear to be made of aluminum that extends and gives the card a more premium feel similar to the ASUS Poseidon series offerings. The heat sink below consists of a large aluminum fine stack that uses at least 6 heating pipes.
Display options on the ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3090, ROG STRIX 3080, and ROG STRIX 3070 graphics cards include dual DisplayPort 1.4a and dual HDMI 2.1 ports. The card will definitely have a factory overclocking equivalent to ROG STRIX OC, which will set 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 cards have triple 8-pin power connectors, while the ROG STRIX RTX 3070 has dual 8-pin connectors.
ASUS has mentioned a price of 16,999 Chinese yen for the graphics card, which puts it at around $ 2500 US. The map is a limited variety that would have small quantities and would be exclusive to the Asian Pacific region. Given that the GeForce RTX 3090 already has a small stock, the GeForce RTX 3090 GUNDAM Edition would be hard to find.
ASUS also unveiled several hardware products and peripherals that have the ZEON and EFSF faction themes, which can be seen below. We already saw the ASUS ROG Maximus XII Extreme Z490 Gundam edition motherboard a few days ago, which the Chinese media has given a better look at today.
