Utilizing its new partnership model for OEMs, Opera has collaborated with ASUS to develop a special edition of its award-winning Opera GX gaming browser, tailored and optimized for ROG products and users. The ROG browser features seamless ASUS Aura integration and offers exclusive ROG-themed backgrounds, background music, sounds and content such as the Electro Punk game.

The ROG browser comes packed with game-changing features, including CPU, RAM, and Network limiters, hundreds of customization options via GX Mods, and seamless integration with popular platforms like Discord and Twitch. Moreover, the browser’s sidebar provides instant access to favorite messaging apps such as Twitch, TikTok, WhatsApp, and Instagram.

“Our innovative partnership model for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) allows us to team up with outstanding gaming brands like ASUS ROG to create truly distinctive browser experiences that keep users engaged with the brand, whether they are gaming, chatting with friends, or looking for their next purchase,” said Mattijs de Valk, VP of Business Development Gaming at Opera. He added, “With ASUS, we’ve forged a technology partnership focused on achieving the best possible synergy between Opera GX and ASUS products.”

Opera GX is now integrated with ASUS Aura, empowering users to personalize and synchronize RGB lighting effects across their beloved ASUS Aura hardware. This feature allows them to create custom lighting effects and animations that dynamically respond each time they open a tab, receive a message, or download a file.

Both ASUS ROG and Opera GX share a passion for innovation and a dedication to delivering exceptional experiences to gamers, which is why the companies are excited to be collaborating to create a best-in-class browser experience for our customers and to be presenting it ahead of Gamescom.
