The Asus ROG Ally stands as a gem in the portable gaming world. Combining comfort and lightness, its 600 gram weight is barely perceptible, making it the ideal companion for gamers of all kinds.
The 7-inch Full HD touchscreen is undoubtedly one of the highlights. Not only does it offer a 120Hz refresh rate, it also offers a tactile experience that makes it easy to navigate the Windows 11 interface.
This feature, combined with AMD FreeSync Premium technology, provides a stutter-free, stutter-free visual experience essential for full game immersion.
Sound is another aspect that deserves special mention. The sound quality is flawless, providing an invaluable spatial audio experience for gamers. Every detail, every effect feels real and immersive, taking the gaming experience to another level.
At the heart of ROG Ally is the AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor. This powerful unit allows games like Marvel Spiderman to run with incredible smoothness, reaching speeds of over 40 FPS at medium-high quality settings. Said performance is supported by technologies such as AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution, which optimizes graphics quality.
Despite his strength, Battery life can be a challenge when faced with AAA titles. But this is understandable given the energy demands of such games. When traveling or when you can’t connect to a power outlet, it’s recommended that gamers consider less graphics-intensive games or tweak the settings to balance performance and battery life.
In terms of autonomy, ROG Ally can offer one to two hours of intense gaming and up to seven hours of content on platforms like Netflix and YouTube.
ROG Ally shines in its own light when it comes to memory and storage. 16GB of LPDDR5 memory guarantees agile response, while 512GB of storage expandable via microSD UHS-II card offers ample room for a decent library of games.
ROG Ally’s versatility is also reflected in its ability to adapt to the player’s needs. Some of your RAM can be redistributed to boost graphics memory, which means more detailed textures and richer environments.
Said configuration can be done manually by assigning values or letting the machine decide how much resources to allocate between RAM and graphics memory.
In addition, the ‘ROG Zero Gravity’ cooling system, which is designed to keep the console cool even during intense gaming sessions, stands out. The system provides optimum airflow using gravity-proof heat pipes and two low-friction fans.
The console also has a host of advanced connectivity features such as Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2. It also offers several ports such as USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, DisplayPort 1.4, and the ROG XG Mobile interface for connecting external GPUs.
In short, ROG Ally is a masterpiece of portable ‘gaming’. It combines design, power and versatility in a compact package that promises hours of high-quality entertainment.
