A collaboration between Evangelion and ROG, the gaming device brand by ASUS, which is very popular around the world.
Many products were announced and released, including not only devices such as headsets and mice, but also motherboards, graphic boards, portable SSD enclosures, T-shirts, and more, with the most popular products selling out immediately.
ASUS has loaned us a large number of these popular devices, and we'd like to introduce them to you!
Eight ROG x Eva devices, boom!
The ROG x Evangelion device we were loaned this time was...
- ROG MAXIMUS Z690 HERO EVA EDITION
- ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3080 12GB GDDR6X OC EVA Edition
- ROG RYUJIN II 360 ARGB EVA EDITION
- ROG Delta S EVA Edition
- ROG Keris Wireless EVA Edition
- ROG Scabbard II EVA Edition
- ROG Strix Scope RX EVA Edition
- ROG Strix Arion EVA Edition
I can't contain my excitement for these gorgeous devices that cost over US$3,600 in total.
Let's take a look at each of these designs.
ROG Delta S EVA Edition
Gaming Headsets ROG Delta S EVA Edition.
Equipped with the high-resolution ESS 9281 Quad DAC, this product delivers crisp, clear sound by providing four digital-to-analog converters for each frequency band: low, mid, high, and ultra-high.
The microphone also reduces over 500 million types of background noise through ASUS AI noise cancellation.
The cover section fuses an illustration of Evangelion's first plane with the ROG logo.
The ROG logo, of course, can be illuminated in over 16.8 million colors with ASUS Aura RGB lighting support.
ROG Keris Wireless EVA Edition
Gaming Mice ROG Keris Wireless EVA Edition.
Weighing only 79g, it is a lightweight yet durable gem.
The 16,000 dpi ROG sensor and unique ROG push-fit switch socket allow you to adjust the feel and response to your preference.
The side mouse buttons can be easily replaced with your favorite color from purple, green, or orange.
ROG Scabbard II EVA Edition
Oversized gaming mouse pad「ROG Scabbard II EVA Edition」
The surface is coated with a water-repellent, oil-repellent, and dust-proof nano-coating, and the contrasting designs of Evangelion and NERV, which appears in the film, are fused together.
The ROG logo can also be seen in places, but it is pervasive in the design and does not look out of place.
Narrow flat stitching on the edges makes it 12% thinner than typical anti-fraying mouse pads.
The mouse pad's close proximity to the desk allows the user to feel the mouse in detail for a comfortable gaming experience.
ROG Strix Scope RX EVA Edition
Gaming Keyboard ROG Strix Scope RX EVA Edition.
ROG RX red-axis optomechanical switches provide blur-free keystrokes, nearly zero debounce latency, and IP57 water and dust resistance.
The durable aluminum alloy top panel is perfect for durability in use.
The entire design is available in purple, green, and black, and comes with a key-top pull-out tool and replaceable keycaps.
ROG Strix Arion EVA Edition
Portable SSD Enclosure ROG Strix Arion EVA Edition.
This product is a case that can be used as an external SSD by connecting and storing an NVMe SSD.
NVMe SSDs with PCI Express support are characterized by their overwhelming transfer speeds compared to SATA SSDs, making them ideal for quick data backups and top-secret missions behind enemy lines(!). NVMe SSDs are ideal for quick data backup and covert missions in enemy territory.
To support heat sensitive NVMe SSDs, the aluminum alloy case is equipped with thermal pads for efficient heat dissipation.
Another great advantage is that no screwdriver is needed because the body is opened using the originally designed pin and the SSD is fixed with thumbscrew.
The body features a NERV design, while the removable protective bumper bears the ROG and Evangelion logos.
Eva designs every fan should buy!
I just love the unity of design when you put the devices side by side!
My personal favorites would be the ROG Strix Scope RX EVA Edition gaming keyboard and the ROG Scabbard II EVA Edition gaming mousepad.
The gaming mouse pad "ROG Scabbard II EVA Edition" is particularly good, with its large 900mm x 400mm body and well-detailed Evangelion design.
And yet, the regular price is a super-cosy US$59.99!
