After announcing its ROG Ally in April, now more details about the device including its Specs and Features have been revealed. As expected, it comes with an AMD Ryzen Z1 series processor, RDNA 3 graphics and a 7-inch 1920×1080-pixel IPS display at 120Hz with 500 nits of brightness. It’ll also have 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, 512GB SSD and the company’s Armory Crate software tweaks.
The biggest draw of the device is that it comes with Windows 11, which allows gamers to access all their publisher libraries and game streaming services, all on a single platform. Asus says that “Every Game, Every Platform, All At Once” is its motto.
It comes with a 7-inch 1920×1080 resolution display at 120Hz with a screen refresh rate of 7ms and it will have 500 nits of brightness. It will also have 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD and the company’s custom AMD Ryzen Z1 series processor.
Asus’ Ally is expected to be a powerful competitor to the Steam Deck. According to tech YouTubers Dave2D and Linus Tech Tips, the device can double the performance of the Steam Deck.
Its AMD APU will be more powerful than the one in the Steam Deck, and it’s been shown to have better heat distribution, quieter fans, and a 120Hz refresh rate that helps games run buttery smooth. In previews with these YouTubers, it could play Ghostrunner and Forza Horizon 5 flawlessly.
It will come in two flavors, with a 512GB version at an expected price of $649 and a 1TB model at $899. It will also be available in black or white and you can pre-order it from the Asus website.
ASUS ROG Ally is set to launch on May 11, 2023, where we will be getting more about its specs, price, and pre-order details!
