Asus unveils the ROG Ally, a handheld gaming console to rival Steam Deck

Ro, 04 April 2023

Just like that, Asus dropped the bomb and announced a brand new gaming console under the Republic of Gamers brand - ROG Ally. It's a handheld device running on Windows 11 and it's supposed to rival the Steam Deck.

However, the Taiwanese company didn't reveal much details and released only a couple of pictures, a teaser video and a few specs. Asus says that the device is powered by a custom AMD APU chip, which can be coupled with a ROG X6 Mobile eGPU. The display has 1080p resolution and runs at 120Hz.

Given that the device runs on Windows 11, it's probably safe to assume that all cloud-based gaming services will work, including Steam and Xbox Cloud Gaming.

The rest remains a mystery. In addition to the missing specs, we are yet to learn more about pricing and availability. You can only sign up for pre-order notification on Ally's landing page (source link below).
