The ASRock Z790 PG SONIC, an officially licensed motherboard featuring SEGA’s Sonic the Hedgehog. A 16-bit spinning ring emblazons the rear IO cover, while on the rear side you’ll even catch a glimpse of Sonic mid-run. The ASRock Z790 PG SONIC motherboard is co-launched to celebrate the release of SEGA’s new Sonic Frontiers game.
Designed to bring back epic memories of catching rings in Green Hill Zone, the motherboard echoes Sonic’s lightning speed with its fast blue and silver shards and Sonic silhouette.
The “Ring” is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Though of unknown origin, Rings can be found everywhere on earth and other places beyond time and space, as well as motherboards! Besides the motherboard outlook is designed around the Sonic the Hedgehog theme, the ASRock Z790 PG SONIC also features a SONIC-inspired UEFI BIOS interface. On the PCB back side you’ll even catch a glimpse of Sonic mid-run.
