Asus completed 30 years last month, but the company waited till Computex 2019 to showcase a few exclusive products. The tech giant revealed a 30th Anniversary Edition of its Zenfone, ZenBook and Prime X299 motherboard.
None of the three products unveiled offer major hardware changes but they feature Asus’ 30th Anniversary” branding with a design revamp and some improved specs. So, let’s take a look at the three products.

Asus has also maxed out the specs on the 30th Anniversary edition of the Zenfone 6, which will feature 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, previously capped at 8GB and 256GB respectively. Everything else about the Zenfone 6 is pretty much the same. Asus also confirmed that only 3000 units of the Limited Edition Zenfone 6 would be available globally.
Prime X299 Motherboard
Asus is famous throughout the industry for their gaming-centric PC hardware; and the Prime X299 Edition 30 motherboard echoes that fame. The X299 Edition 30 pays homage to the ISA-386C from 1990. This anniversary edition motherboard is a redesigned Prime X299-Deluxe II with similar specifications and support for Wi-Fi 6. The 30th Edition Prime X299 also sports a fancy 2-inch LiveDash OLED that displays systems vitals or custom art.
