After much hype since the April Fool’s, the ROG Ally finally made its appearance globally – the gaming handheld is now available for preorder on with full retail launch globally on June 13, 2023. As a Windows-powered handheld, the company says it is capable of running  “any game from any platform”, with three months of free Xbox Game Pass available right out of the box.

The chips are cooled by “Zero Gravity” cooling system which maintains cooling performance on any orientation of the device. Next to the CPU is the 16GB LPDDR5-6400 RAM, 512GB M.2 2230 PCIe 4.0 SSD, UHS-II microSD card slot for further storage expansion; it also comes with Wi-Fi 6E onboard, as well as 3.5mm headphone jack and USB-C (alongside XGm port). The display meanwhile is a 500 nits, 7-inch FHD 120Hz display with 7ms response time, 100% sRGB coverage covered by the glossy Gorilla Glass Victus (with DXC coating for reduced reflections).

The ROG Ally also comes with optional accessories, including the ROG Gaming Charger Dock that comes with a HDMI port on the charger itself – similar in design to Apple’s iMac charger (where the LAN port situates). There’s also the XG Mobile external GPUs – with both NVIDIA and AMD options available (RTX 4090 or RX 6850M XT) for additional I/O expansion.

It comes with two configurations: the more powerful model comes with AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor with 8 cores, 16 threads; whereas the entry-level model features the standard AMD Ryzen Z1 processor with 6 cores, 12 threads at disposal. Both models support various AMD Radeon technologies such as FSR, RSR upscaling, with the latter built on a driver-level to upscale any game. The ROG Ally will be priced at $699 and $599 respectively – with the latter available at a later date this year.

Pokdepinion: Price is indeed competitive, let’s see if Valve has any answer to that.
