Z790 PG SONIC MOTHERBOARD
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 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.
