If you have ever dreamed of playing your favourite PC games on a handheld device, you might want to check out the Asus Rog Ally. This sleek and powerful gaming console runs on Windows 11 and features an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor with RDNA 3 graphics. It also has a stunning 7-inch Full HD touchscreen with a 120Hz refresh rate and FreeSync Premium support. Whether you are into indie gems or AAA blockbusters, the Asus Rog Ally can seemingly handle them all with ease.
The Asus Rog Ally is not just a gaming device, though. It’s also a full-fledged Windows 11 machine that lets you access all your game libraries and streaming services on one device. You can also connect it to a TV or monitor and pair multiple controllers for some couch multiplayer fun. Better still, if you want to take your gaming to the next level, you can hook up the Rog XG Mobile external GPU for esports and 4K gaming.
The Asus Rog Ally is designed to be comfortable and ergonomic for handheld gaming. It weighs only 608 grams and has textured handgrips that give you a solid hold on the device. The device has customisable buttons and paddles so you play your way, and thanks to the Zero Gravity thermal system and dual fan design, the Asus Rog Ally stays cool and quiet in any orientation.
The device also comes with some modern security features, such as a Windows Hello fingerprint reader, parental controls, and Windows Defender. As a bonus, it also includes a 3-month trial of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, giving you access to hundreds of great games from Xbox Game Studios, indie studios, and more.
