Sadly, that’s all the info in the tweet, and we’re only left with bits of data regarding the ROG Ally’s specs. As early reports and previews show, the ROG Ally rocks a 7-inch, 1080p, 120Hz display. At its core is some sort of custom AMD Zen4 and RDNA3 CPU+GPU solution. Something potentially similar to the Ryzen 7040U, although that’s just speculation. As Linus of Linus Tech Tips stated, the custom silicon inside the Ally can deliver up to twice the performance of the Valve Steam Deck with the same 35W power envelope and should be able to output 50% better frame rates in 15W power mode.
As for the other unofficial specs of the ROG Ally, we know that it measures 28.0 x 11.3 x 3.9mm and weighs 608 grams, which is lighter and more compact than the Steam Deck. And we know the Ally runs Windows 11 with custom ASUS software overlays on top.
With international availability now promised by Asus, perhaps the most important element of the Ally is its price. It will ultimately make or break the handheld, especially now that Valve finally has a steady supply of its highly competitive Steam Deck with a starting MSRP of just $399.
