Asus simply launched its ROG Maximus Z790 Hero EVA-02 motherboard, and a display on its left reads “Evangenlion” as an alternative of “Evangelion.” Tragic, I do know. It is a $700 restricted version motherboard and is the second iteration the corporate has launched in collaboration with the wildly fashionable anime Neon Genesis Evangelion.
The typo can simply be noticed in a number of locations. You’ll be able to see it proper on the product web page on Asus’ website or on this unboxing video from JayzTwoCents. From the photographs, it seems just like the typo is just on a display on the left facet of the motherboard. The pink and orange colorway is impressed by Evangelion Unit 2, piloted by everybody’s favourite redhead, Asuka Langley Soryu
Whereas it’s an costly mistake to make, a minimum of the motherboard is a restricted version, so there are just a few of those items. However since they’re restricted version, it’s additionally extremely unlikely that Asus goes to repair the difficulty. Additionally, the motherboard is bought out on the positioning anyway.
You’ll be able to solely purchase a used model of it retailing for a few hundred bucks greater than the unique worth. The humorous factor is that whereas this is fairly embarrassing, some customers assume it’s “endearing,” whereas others, like our personal Lead Editor and in-house Evangelion fan, Jorge Jimenez, say it “feels” like a mistake the anime’s primary hero, Shinji Ikari, would “make in a heartbeat after which spiral right into a deep despair for 3 episodes.”
Typo apart, the motherboard we’re speaking about is fairly hardcore when it comes to specs. You get a 20 + 1 + 2 VRM design, assist for PCIe 5.0 SSDs, Wi-Fi 7, and a ton of USB ports. In reality, in keeping with Digital Trends, it’s among the finest motherboards you will get your arms on.
