Earlier this month, Asus introduced its portable Windows gaming handheld ROG Ally. There aren’t too many details about its specs and features yet. But the device is already being eagerly awaited. Asus is now successfully keeping the hype train running – the Taiwanese company has just announced that they will sell the Asus ROG Ally worldwide. The release is said to be “sooner than you expect”.
Unfortunately, that’s all the information that surfaced on the Asus Twitter account. According to the only report so far, the Asus ROG Ally is based on a 7-inch display with a 1080p resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate. It is powered by an AMD Zen4 CPU and an RDNA3 GPU. The chipset in the Ally should be twice as powerful as the processor in its main competitor, the Valve Steam Deck. Data is for 35 watt operation, while in 15 watt power mode 50% faster frame rates are said to be possible.
In addition, the Asus ROG Ally will measure 28 x 11.3 x 3.9 mm and weigh 608 grams. This makes the handheld both lighter and more compact than the Steam Deck. Windows 11 takes over the drive with some ASUS software adjustments. With the promise of international availability, the price is probably the most exciting topic from now on. Especially considering the fact that Valve has finally solved the Steam Deck’s delivery issues. And is currently advertising a competitive price of just $399 (€359).
