The Asus ROG Ally is the direct competitor to the Valve Steam Deck. After a patchy announcement on April 1, it’s set to hit global markets soon. Perhaps the gaming console is not alone. According to a new rumor, Asus also wants to launch a high-end version of the console. This could be called Asus ROG Ally Pro.
According to multiple sources, the Asus ROG Ally Pro has an AMD Z1 Extreme chipset under the hood accessing 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. The price should be $699.99 (€637). According to this, we would have to pay $51 more than Valve is calling for the 512GB Steam deck.
We don’t know yet how much the entry-level model with the normal, not extreme AMD Z1 will cost. But we know that the Asus ROG Ally comes with a 7 large FHD display with a 120Hz refresh rate and Gorilla Glass DXC on the top. The dimensions are 11.02 x 4.37 x 0.83 inches (279.9 x 110.9 x 21 mm) and the weight is 608 g. Inside is an M.2 2230 SSD, which you only have to loosen a single screw to replace. The handheld console’s battery charges from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes with the included 65-watt USB-C charger.
