ROG and ACRONYM collaborate once again to reshape the future of mobile computing

ARCNM BERLIN RMT02 Master Set V1-87

ROG and renowned technical apparel firm ACRONYM first collaborated in 2020 to design a special edition version of the Zephyrus G14, and we’ve joined forces again to leverage their design expertise for an all-new project. ACRONYM knew exactly what ROG device they wanted to work with for their next project: the ROG Flow Z13. The Flow Z13 debuted in 2022 as the world’s most powerful gaming tablet, and is an incredibly versatile device on its own, but ACRONYM’s design team took it to a whole new level. By incorporating functional elements from their existing bag designs, as well as a bold reimagining of what a tablet chassis should be, they built the ROG Flow Z13-ACRNM RMT02, a Flow Z13 for new forms of versatility and portability. 

Designed for ultimate versatility 

Custom-machined aluminum gives rigidity to a brand-new frame, and acts as a robust carrying method for the device. Rubber holds are thoughtfully placed along the rear to provide grip no matter how you have the tablet oriented, with rubber corners to keep the machine safe from accidental bumps or drops. This attention to both visual and tactile details is something that ACRONYM excels at, and the RMT02 is truly a one-of-a-kind machine. 

Combining ACRONYM’s material-first design philosophy and avant-garde style with the Flow Z13’s unique take on PC gaming, the RMT02 redefines mobile computing. This truly unique machine is built for gamers, producers, content creators, and any digital nomad that needs to work on the go and never miss a step along the way. 

Stylish from any angle

Like the original Flow Z13, the RMT02 also features a standalone detachable keyboard that doubles as a screen protector, allowing you to get serious desktop work done on the road. Finished in gorgeous dark leather, and featuring ACRONYM’s own custom alphabet and stylized keys, the keyboard is a functional yet striking work of art. In true ACRONYM fashion, form follows function. 

ACRONYM’s ingenious strap design sets this device apart as well. This multi-functional strap acts not only as a standard carrying handle in briefcase and shoulder configurations, but when attached to all four mounting points can turn the RMT02 into a hands-free dream machine for producers, allowing you to easily use a stylus to take notes or draw on-location sketches. When connected to Wi-Fi on a production set or job site, the RMT02 truly pushes the next level of possibility. 

Luxury you can feel

The custom CNC-milled aluminum chassis has even more tricks up its sleeve. To begin, the bare metal was flattened to ensure there were no blemishes or other imperfections. ACRONYM wanted to make sure that the pure aluminum alloy 6063 would shine through, so they used a gradual 352-minute milling process with multiple different tools to create intricate patterns on the surface of the metal. As a final step, the aluminum is anodized to preserve the aluminum’s natural luster and prevent oxidation and corrosion. 

An integrated kickstand easily transforms the RMT02 into a traditional laptop form factor in a landscape orientation, perfect for gaming, creation, or content viewing. Unique to the RMT02, that same kickstand can also be used when the machine is a portrait orientation, making it the only Z13 capable of hands-free use from both angles. And of course, the strategically placed 45° angled rubber grips on the chassis make the device easy to grip as a handheld, keeping up with any fast-paced lifestyle.

For those on the go, quick and efficient transport of all your accessories is an absolute necessity, so the gallium-nitride 130W USB Type-C power adapter, cables, and stylus fit snugly in a waterproof carrying case designed to meld seamlessly with the device's unique styling. 

Years of collaboration 

To design the RMT02, ACRONYM cofounder Errolson Hugh called on an all-star team of experts, starting with industrial designer and feature film concept artist Phil Saunders, best known for designing the iconic Iron Man suit for Marvel Studios. His experience working with metals complemented graphic artist Raf Rennie, who joined the team to refine the RMT02 aesthetic, logos, and typography, while designer Brandon Smith engineered the multifunctional strap system for the device. The project was spearheaded by Rod Chong, an LA-based creative director and long-time collaborator with Hugh and ACRONYM. As a collective, this team embarked on a multi-year process to produce a truly one-of-a-kind machine.

“The design idea of the RMT02 seeks to make a new proposition,” said Errolson Hugh, cofounder of ACRONYM. “We're trying to reimagine how you can interact with the world around you, together with your machine, and do things in a new way. We chose to partner with Republic of Gamers because they had a completely open-minded approach. They were willing to go into unknown territory, and they had the know-how and the competence to deliver those ideas.” 

Work and play with confidence 

While ACRONYM was busy designing a machine that would make people sit up and take notice, ROG was outfitting it with the best in ultraportable PC hardware. Kitted with the latest Intel Core i9-13900H processor, this machine has flagship power whether you’re using it for work or play. For the first time ever, we’ve also fitted the RMT02 with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU, a high-end graphics chip that truly makes this the best gaming tablet yet built. Thanks to ACRONYM’s experience as artists and designers, we had the feedback we needed to create the perfect machine for creators. Paired with 32GB of 5200MHz LPDDR5 RAM and a 1TB PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD, this device is truly a machine worthy of the Republic of Gamers.

RMT02-4

Premium hardware demands an equally stunning display, so we paired the RMT02 with one of our cutting-edge Nebula displays. This 1440p, 13-inch, 16:10 aspect ratio display is ideal for keeping more of your music production software or web browser on the screen at once. A 165Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time keeps motion crystal clear in even the most frenetic action games. Paired with the GPU’s MUX Switch, this Nebula Display supports NVIDIA Advanced Optimus, allowing it to dynamically switch between the integrated graphics for power savings and the more powerful dedicated GPU for ultimate performance. With coverage of 100% of the DCI-P3 color space and 500 nits of peak brightness, colors will always appear bright and vivid no matter the content. 

Cutting-edge inside and out 

RMT02-5

While the RMT02 is a serious powerhouse on its own, as a member of the Flow family, it also supports pairing with our XG Mobile lineup of external GPUs. Now featuring up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU, the XG Mobile boosts your system’s graphics performance through the roof, in a 1.3 kilogram enclosure the size of a paperback novel. The XG Mobile also comes equipped with additional display outputs, as well as dedicated network and USB ports, letting you quickly turn the tablet into a desktop-class battlestation no matter where you are. 

ROG and ACRONYM are thrilled to share the brand new RMT02 with the world, and please join us for the specially crafted “BEACON Program” AR companion experience using Web3 technology launching in tandem with RMT02. Truly a cutting-edge design both inside and out, this machine is set to redefine what gaming and creating on the move looks like.
