Asus is heading to release a minimal edition RTX 3090 24GB GPU inspired by the most baffling and depressing anime at any time, Neon Genesis Evangelion. Just how confined, you talk to? Very well, Taiwanese retailer, CoolPC (thanks @momomo_us) has opened pre-orders on the card and will only be promoting 15 of these GPUs.
The Asus ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090 O24G Evangelion Edition prices TWD $63,990 or $2,185 USD which is only a little bit additional high-priced than Asus ROG’s non-anime themed RTX 3090s. Every single purchase will come with a ROG Herculx GPU holder considering that the RTX 3090 is a instead chunky piece of hardware and some PCs require the help.
The aggressive purple and green color scheme are based on EVA-Unit 1, the huge mech that series protagonist and the most annoying boy in the planet, Shinji Ikari, pilots. However, I am hoping when you get rid of the go over you would not locate any tooth or bizarre pink goo. One side showcases the EVA-01’s bust even though the fans each have a logo for NERV HQ, Unit-1, and ROG.
The item listing (translated from Chinese) does not make any mention of lighting but the GPU this is based mostly on has LED lights on the top of the device that can be customized by ROG’s Armoury Crate application. The merchandise pictures demonstrate a delicate crimson glow which I can only presume are the lights in motion and not the GPU awakening to eliminate Angels.
The just one tiny touch I feel EVA admirers are heading to like is that the leading of the GPU has a prolonged synchronization bar with the ROG emblem in the middle exhibiting a 100% sync rate.
In the context of the anime, a 100% sync amount means the pilot and their EVA are completely in tune with each and every other, allowing for for highest ass-kickery. Which is the vibe you want when putting in a graphics card.
CoolPC designs to shut down preorders in four days or as soon as the orders are crammed, so as I compose this you will find even now some time to pre-get. There is certainly no word from Asus on a advertising like this coming to North The usa.
If you are all-in on all matters EVA, CoolPC is operating a very similar promo for an Evangelion-themed MSI desktop Pc (minus a CPU/GPU) that even will come with your option of a purple Unit 1 umbrella or fanny pack for a minimal in excess of $600 USD.
