ASUS has unveiled a product collaboration with SOTSU and SUNRISE with an incredible line-up of products, peripherals, and accessories inspired by the classic mecha anime Gundam.
The ASUS x Gundam collection features two limited-edition models that merge ASUS’ state-of-the-art products of ROG Strix and TUF Gaming with the iconic visuals of Gundam.
The ROG Strix Gundam model proudly presents a heroic white color scheme inspired by the Earth Federation Space Force branding and the RX-78-2 Gundam.
Fans of the anime will fall in love with how decked out the ROG build is from an aesthetic and specs standpoint. The Gundam model carries a GeForce GTX 3080 along with a Z490 Motherboard and an 850W blue-glow power supply.
Its peripherals hone in on the collaborative design with a themed Scope TKL keyboard and an Impact II headset that’ll make you feel like you’re inside a Gundam cockpit. Other worthy mentions would be the XG279Q-G monitor and the RT-AX82U gaming router that changes color with a press of a button.

The Sieg Zeon Zaku II model captures the darker side of the Gundam series and embraces Char Aznable’s iconic Zaku II Mobile Suit in its crimson design.
For its interior, the Zaku II model is equipped with a B550M motherboard and an X3 GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER graphics card.
The homages to the Zaku II shine through with the horned Zaku helmet CPU cooler, the GT301 casing that features a 301 headset holder reminiscent of Char’s shoulder shield, and the VG27AQGL1A monitor that dons the iconic cyclops eye on the back.
For Gundam and ASUS enthusiasts, the collaboration will also give out Gunpla kits for those who buy the specific model sets at a certain price point. At the highest price point, the Gundam model will feature the PG Unleashed version of the RX-78-2 Gundam while the Sieg Zeon Zaku II will come with an MG MSN-04 SAZABI Ver. Ka kit.
