ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced a new series of Electro Punk special-edition gaming devices decked out in a bold black-and-pink color combination. ROG has a long history of weaving Aura Sync into their huge ecosystem of devices, and this time around their expanding their colour palette to include a new cyberpunk-inspired shade.
ROG designers agreed early on to focus their next lineup of devices and peripherals on cyberpunk-inspired pinks. After scrutinizing approximately 10 shades of robust roses and crisp corals in different lightings and environments, ROG designers settled on a high-energy hue with the hex color code #F7266B. And boy, does it look good.
To make the coloured highlights pop out, they picked a classic black as their backdrop. This isn’t just for aesthetic purposes as dark materials hold up well over time. So considering gaming is quite intensive, and products are used often, having black to support it will help keep ROG products looking crisp and clean, while adding the perfect contrast to brighter accents and RGB lighting.
That being said, they’ve got a full set of matching ROG devices in their new Electro Punk colour combination, so let’s get straight into it:

The 15-inch ROG Stris G15 focus on gaming fundamentals while also bringing the Electro Punk colour to put a coral crown on a streamlined gaming machine.

There’s also a bright pink touch to highlight the WASD keys as well as the pink ROG logo across the lid.
On the inside, you can get up to the latest 10th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU which has 8 cores and 16 threads to get you through the day, be it work or play.
