Even though Neon Genesis Evangelion was first released almost 27 years ago, it has an everlasting impact on Japanese and global pop culture even to this day. Hence, it is not surprising to see new Eva-themed collaborative products to be released from time to time and among some of the recent examples are PC components as well as peripherals from ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG).
In fact, the ASUS ROG x Evangelion collection is so extensive that you can actually build a complete PC with it. If you have been dreaming of having an Eva-themed PC without doing it yourself, this is the news for you.
Available in Malaysia since earlier this month, the full ASUS ROG x Evangelion PC features a ROG Maximum Z690 Hero motherboard as well as the ROG Strix RTX 3080 graphics card. In addition to that, the PC also comes together with the Ryujin II 360 all-in-one liquid CPU cooler and ROG Thor Platinum II 1000W power supply unit.
All of these components are housed inside the ROG Strix Helios mid-tower chassis. The PC set is also accompanied by a ROG Strix Scope RX gaming keyboard, ROG Keris wireless gaming mouse, ROG Delta S headset, ROG Scabbrd II gaming mousepad, and ROG Strix XG27AQM 27-inch WQHD 240Hz gaming display.
Naturally, all of the components and peripherals for this PC are specially made ROG Eva Edition models which revolve around the Eva-01 mecha. Priced at RM 23,000 (yes, 23k!), the Malaysian-spec ROG x Evangelion PC does not come with a processor, RAM, and storage drive though which means that you have to incur additional costs in order to make it a complete PC.
For those who are wondering whether you can purchase these components or peripherals on an individual basis, only a handful can be obtained in that manner for our market. Based on the information that ASUS Malaysia provided, the list includes the ROG Strix XG27AQM monitor which costs RM 4,388.
Other than that, the ROG Strix Scope RX keyboard is also available here for RM 619 while the ROG Keris wireless mouse, ROG Scabbrd II mousepad, and ROG Delta S headset are priced at RM 409, RM 619, and RM 1,159 respectively. For more information regarding the in-store availability for each product within the ROG x Evangelion collection, you can reach out to the authorized dealers that are listed on ASUS Malaysia’s mini-site for the collection.
