Asus is creating its first-ever gaming handheld PC, the ROG Ally, as a competitor to the Steam Deck. The Ally runs on Windows 11 and boasts a specially customized APU made by Asus and AMD, making it the fastest APU available for on-the-go gameplay. Additionally, the device has dual fans to keep it cool during intense gaming sessions while also remaining quiet.
The ROG Ally features a standard set of controls, including two analog sticks, a D-pad, four face buttons, and several smaller buttons for menus and settings. Users can also connect it to the ROG XG Mobile eGPU and send games to a TV for an even more immersive experience.
According to a hands-on video by YouTuber Dave2D, the ROG Ally is smaller, lighter, and flatter than Valve’s Steam Deck. It features a 7-inch 16:9 display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 500 nits of brightness, and a 120Hz refresh rate. The Steam Deck, on the other hand, has a 7-inch 16:10 display with a 1280 x 800 resolution, 400 nits of brightness, and a 60Hz refresh rate.
