On April 1st, Asus introduced the Steam Deck-focused ROG Ally handheld console, the most popular device in the industry. However, the Taiwanese manufacturer has been quite secretive about the specifications. Some things, like the resolution and refresh rate of the screen, were revealed, and everything else was still a secret…

As is often the case with any technology product that is about to go into production, the leaks were not long in coming. Some curious people noticed that Asus ROG Ally has already made its mark on Geekbenchrevealing each of its specifications (via Videocards). Be careful because there are surprises.

First of all, it is important to note that it seems that there are two different models Asus ROG Ally, which vary in power. However, we do not know if both devices will go on sale, or if the company has not yet decided on one.

The first variant of the Asus ROG Ally, the most powerful of them all, includes AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme Custom APU (CPU+GPU) and based architectures Zen4 And RDNA 3. He also has 8 cores, 16 threads and clock speed up to 5.1 GHz.. These figures are enough to display the graphic section as expected.

The other version targets the similar AMD Ryzen Z1 chip. The difference is that you only have 6 cores / 12 threads and its maximum clock frequency 4.939 GHz.

The interesting thing is that the AMD Ryzen Z1 will give life not only to the Asus ROG Ally, but to a whole wave of handheld game consoles that are on the way.

In both models, yes, the memory is exactly the same. He has 16GB DDR5and your storage is managed by one disk 512 GB PCIe Gen 4 SSD. It looks like Asus ROG Ally, unlike Steam Deck, is not going to explore lower capacity versions. And for those who need more space, there will be MicroSD card slot.

As for the screen, there are no deviations from the data presented in the presentation. Asus ROG Ally includes 1080p panel with 120Hz refresh rate. This component, without a doubt, can be the most important buying factor. Especially for those players who like competitive multiplayer games.

Now there’s a fact that Asus has managed to keep: the price. The features above make us think that the Asus ROG Ally will be significantly more expensive than the Steam Deck, and we shouldn’t be surprised if that’s the case.

However, Asus has already warned that the cost of ROG Ally will be quite competitive. But… regarding what? In a steam deck? To his powerful equipment? These are issues that will be resolved in the coming months. while the console no release date yetthe Taiwanese company intends to place it in stores during this year.
