ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 3090 GUNDAM is a true collector’s item

Two months ago ASUS announced custom graphics cards and other PC peripherals series commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Japanese Anime series, GUNDAM. The company released new graphics cards series inspired by the series featuring white and red models. The fastest model based on the series is the RTX 3090 GUNDAM, featuring a new shroud design:

ASUS currently offers its flagship ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards in three variants:

ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 3090 (Original, GUNDAM, White Edition)

All three variants carry the same specifications and the same board design. The only difference is the color of the shroud and how easily are they are to be purchased. The White edition has only recently been released, so it will take time before they show up at retailers in a meaningful quantity. The ROG STRIX GUNDAM, however, is limited to Asia. It appears that some sellers currently have the card listed at JD, which is a Chinese retailer, although the cards do not appear to be in stock.

One of the Chiphell users, kdtree, has been able to snag one and take some photos. Due to very limited quantity and regional sales, this might actually be the only opportunity to see the graphics card up close for many of our readers. The RTX 3090 GUNDAM features custom packaging as well as new shroud and backplate designs:

ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 30 cards are indeed big. The cards based on a new ROG STRIX design are triple-slot and 32cm long (GA102-based). The RTX 3080/3090 models even have three 8-pin power connectors and a requirement of an 850W power supply. The graphics cards feature a custom display output configuration of three DisplayPort 1.4 and dual HDMI 2.1. These cards do not have USB Type-C.

Compared to the original series (black and white), the GUNDAM model has a different cover for the RGB strip:

The card is covered with GUDNAM and Earth Federation Space Force logos in multiple spots:

ASUS already released a number of official photos of the graphics card:

ASUS ROG STRIX RTX3090 GUNDAM’s official price in China is 16,999 Yuans (~2,600 USD), which is 5,000 more than the black version.
