Asus plans to announce the official price and release date of its first ROG Ally handheld game console on May 11th. However, as happened a few days ago with the specifications, the Taiwanese manufacturer has leaked information about the cost of the option with higher benefits.

We must remember that Asus ROG Ally will be available in two models, which will differ only in the potential of their APU. One will integrate the chip AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme whose processor has 8 cores and 16 threads, and the GPU will have 12 cores and will display an average graphics performance of 8.6 teraflops.

According to snoopy techwhich is usually a fairly reliable source of information about future devices, Asus ROG Ally with Z1 Extreme will cost $699. The figure, if correct, will surprise more than one, as many expected this version to carry a significantly higher price tag due to its brutal components.

However, this cost is still higher than the more expensive Steam Deck (512GB) that can be purchased for $649. However, Asus will list the ROG Ally for sale with less performance and therefore cheaper. It will have an AMD Ryzen Z1 APU with a 6-core/12-thread CPU and a 4-core GPU capable of reaching 2.8 teraflops.

Although SnoopyTech does not yet know the price of this version, I think it will be from 499 to 599 dollars.enough to stand up to a Valve product.

What do we know about Asus ROG Ally

Asus ROG Ally’s other key data remains to be seen, mostly related to the battery. No matter how powerful the hardware it boasts, can be doomed to failure if autonomy is not capable of at least equaling competition. It should not be forgotten that this is hardware focused on portability and will be analyzed as such.

Aside from the APU, the rest of the components are expected to be the same in both variants of the Asus ROG Ally. One of the factors that will make a noticeable difference to the Steam Deck is the screen whose resolution is 1080p and update frequency to 120 Hz (compared to 800p/60Hz of its competitor).

RAM will 16GB LPDDR5and in the storage section we find 512 GB PCIe Gen 4 SSD – although models with a smaller capacity are not excluded. Please note that the space can be expanded with a microSD card slot.

Of course, Asus ROG Ally will rely on Windows 11therefore we guarantee compatibility with games from Steam, Epic Games Store, GOG, Xbox Game Pass, Ubisoft Connect and EA Play.

It will be until May 11, when we will leave doubts. Asus also needs to define its distribution strategy as it doesn’t make sense to wait so long for ROG Ally to launch if it can’t keep up with demand later.
