PASIG CITY, PHILIPPINES (July 20, 2023) — ASUS Republic of Gamers Philippines (ROG) is proud to announce the launch with price and availability of the ROG Ally, an incredibly powerful new Windows 11 gaming handheld. Driven by the cutting-edge AMD Ryzen™ Z1 Series processor, the Ally can breeze through AAA games and indie titles in 1080p with ease, whether gamers are playing alone or with friends. The Ally is already available in your nearest ASUS and ROG Concept Stores with a chance to get exclusive bundled items when you register on the ROG First 100 Buyers Promotion starting today July 20. With robust support and partnerships throughout the industry, the Ally is poised to be the ultimate handheld gaming machine.
Full HD AAA gaming in the palm of your hand
The ROG Ally is a truly next-gen handheld, offering Full HD (FHD) gaming on the go, and able to run even modern AAA titles faster and smoother than any other handheld on the market. Since it runs Windows 11, it can play any game from any platform, and includes three months of Xbox Game Pass right out of the box. Gamers can play solo, connect to a TV to play with friends, or kick into high gear with the ROG XG Mobile suite of external GPUs for a truly top-tier gaming experience.
The Ally is powered by an all-new Ryzen Z1 Series processor from AMD. Built on the "Zen 4" architecture combined with AMD RDNA 3 architecture-based graphics, the Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor rivals the prowess of game consoles, featuring 8 cores, 16 threads, and up to 8.6 teraflops of graphics processing power. An AMD Ryzen Z1 variant will be available in August 2023 with 6 cores and 12 processing threads, and both models support AMD FidelityFX™ Super Resolution and AMD Radeon Super Resolution upscaling technologies for excellent performance and stunning visuals in demanding AAA and indie titles.
Making this possible is the ROG Zero Gravity thermal system, which uses a dual-fan system with ultrathin heatsink fins and high-friction heat pipes to ensure the Ally stays cool in any orientation. The Ally also comes equipped with 16 GB of high speed LPDDR5 6400 MHz memory, 512 GB of PCIe® Gen 4 storage, and a UHS-II microSD card slot to further expand its storage capacity. WiFi 6E support ensures that the Ally stays on a rock-solid connection, even in congested networks, whether gamers are natively playing a multiplayer match or streaming a game via Xbox Cloud Gaming or AMD Link.
Flagship gaming performance demands a display to match, and the Ally does not disappoint. Equipped with a 120 Hz FHD (1080p) touchscreen with AMD FreeSync™ Premium technology gamers will enjoy supreme motion clarity in fast-paced games, with no tearing or stuttering. The display also has a maximum brightness of 500 nits, enabling gamers to easily keep track of the action in more challenging environments, like outdoors. This touchscreen display also acts seamlessly to allow navigation of Windows 11 when gamers need to change settings or install their next game.
Play All Your Games
The ROG Ally was designed from the ground up with Windows at its heart, able to #playALLYourgames from any platform. ROG has collaborated with Microsoft, game publishers, and individual studios to ensure that gamers using the Ally have the best experience possible. Full support for Steam, the EA App, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass, the Epic Games Store, GOG Galaxy 2.0, Android apps, and other game platforms ensures that no matter where users download their games, the Ally has them covered.
The Ally even comes bundled with a free three-month Xbox Game Pass subscription, giving gamers instant access to Microsoft’s game library the moment they unbox the machine. Xbox Game Pass members have access to hundreds of games, including hits like Minecraft Legends, Grounded, Age of Empire IV and many more.
ROG is also proud to work with Xbox Game Studios, Capcom, HoYoverse, Level Infinite, 505 Games, Team 17, Nacon, Techland, Squanch Games, and Fatshark to provide the best gaming experience on the Ally.
