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, but we don’t know if it’s LCD or OLED and how fast can it refreshes.
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).
