The Asus ROG Ally Handheld PC has been made official, and here is an early look at the device that competes with the Steam Deck.

The ASUS ROG Ally handheld PC was initially conceived as a prank for April Fool’s Day and has only recently been made official as of today. Reportedly including a Zen4 central processing unit (CPU), RDNA 3 graphics, and a semi-custom 4nm AMD Ryzen accelerated processing unit (APU), the gadget in question is the one that offers the highest level of performance to date. Support for the ASUS ROG XG Mobile eGPU, which will improve its performance to levels comparable to those of high-end laptops, is the feature that truly differentiates it from Valve’s Steam Deck.
Additional features include a dual cooling fan system that operates at a whisper quiet 20 dB and a 7-inch display that has a resolution of 1920 by 1080 and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The display also has a refresh rate of 120 Hz. There is no other information that has been disclosed; however, it does appear to be a pre-order exclusive at Best Buy, at least for the time being. Regarding the cost, it is rumoured to be “competitive,” which may imply anywhere from $399 (for the Steam Deck) to $799 for the full version (GPD Win 4). There is currently no information available regarding when the pre-order will really go live, nor is there a specific release date.
