Asus is prepping its second ROG´Evangelion collection of hardware, which is focused on EVA-02 and Asuka Langley Soryu characters. As with the original collection (focused on EVA-01), the new assortment includes EVA-02 and Asuka-themed computer parts for an eye-catching machine.

The second ROG´Evangelion collection includes everything that one needs to build a complete PC, including a ROG Maximus Z790 Hero Eva-02 Edition motherboard, ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 24GB GDDR6X OC EVA-02 Edition graphics card, ROG Ryujoin III 360 ARGB EVA-02 Edition all-in-one CPU liquid cooling system, ROG Strix Scope RX EVA-02 Edition keyboard, ROG Gladius III Wireless AimPoint EVA-02 Edition mouse, ROG Thor 1000W Platinum II EVA Edition power supply, and ROG Hyperion EVA-02 Edition chassis. In addition, the collection includes a graphics card, mouse grip, and keycaps.

The only difference between Eva-02 Edition and regular ROG parts is the visual look — there is no difference from a performance point of view.

Asustek's ROG´Evangelion Eva-02 collection looks pretty spectacular, regardless of whether you are an anime fan. Notably, Asus no longer offers an anime-themed display, as it did with the Eva-01-themed collection.  

Asuka Langley Soryu is a Neon Genesis Evangelion character known for piloting the Eva Unit-02, a giant bio-mechanical robot. Asuka is presented as a confident and outgoing young lady with a troubled past and fiery personality, and ROG´Evangelion's red and orange color theme should emphasize the character's personality.

"The Second Impact is coming," a statement by Asus reads. "ROG continues the Evangelion project for gamers with a brand-new machine design centered around Eva-02 and Asuka. The second collection debuted with motherboards, graphics cards, cardholder gaming cases, all-in-one coolers, peripherals, and gear. Build the full machine and achieve high levels of synchronization with Asuka."

    Hopefully the hardware is better than Evangelion's story and ending that made absolutely no sense.

    Oh! god MY EYES.
    WHY such a gaudy, brash ugly thing?
    Was it necessary? Really?
