ASUS ROG Ally - AMD powered handheld gaming console


Anybody else excited to see this hit the market? It supposedly uses AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme APU, which appears to be a customized version of the Ryzen 7 7840U APU mobile platform chipset. AMD is absolutely crushing it when it comes to handheld gaming consoles (Steam Deck) this will definitely entice Nintendo to go AMD for their next console 🙂

Really excited although I won't buy one, I know, its strange but I do enjoy to see this advancements again.

I feel like mobile gaming is now relevant again after the PS Vita.
Sony really needs to keep up and put one on the market again, but with steam this time. (Don't be a fool SONY)

Nintendo had AMD in the past, currently it is running on a Nvidia Tegra.
They don't want x86, they want proprietary games, not Steam.

RoG will always be niche, and they beat pretty much everyone in that game.

Was going to mention the Vita too. Don't think they need to add Steam, just give it first party games. They will obviously lose money if they gave people the option to buy games from a different vendor. Though the rumor of the next Sony handheld does not give me any confidence that it won't just be a streaming handheld.

Well, they have games to supply the hardware with, but right now with Steam Deck and RoG ally, not sure if limiting their rig to proprietary will be good on the long run.

Maybe both would be a blast, STEAM and SONY exclusives!

...I saw those rumors and man... Sony already did that in the past, remote play is not new.
If they go down that path again, is pretty much a "foot shot"

I remember one of the first attempts of remote play with PS3 and SonyEricsson AINO and later on the SonyEricsson Xperia Play.



I had one and, sure it was fun to play but today people want logging into steam and play what they have. 

I'm an "hardcore" SONY user, from TV, Speakers, Cameras to Phones. They are really good but the phone division is sadly going down fast with this kind of decisions, like the remote play. 😑

For the first time, I consider changing from the Xperia to a RoG phone.

Here it is like I said one month before.

Depending on the price for the model with more storage, I might buy one. Does anyone know if you can dual boot with Steam OS and Windows?

Ryzen 7 7700X, MSI MAG X670E Tomahawk Wifi, Corsair DOMINATOR® TITANIUM RGB 2x16GB DDR5 DRAM 6000MT/s CL30, AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT, Corsair HX Series™ HX1000, Corsair MP600 PRO NH 4TB

I'm waiting to see a price before I think about committing. The Logitech option routinely ends up under $300 and it's a very similar product though it is all cloud gaming without local storage. Will it easily do PS remote play? Logitech option you need to use an external controller from what I understand, but it easily does XBox remote play. So do need a little more information.
