The first thing I thought when I started playing with the ROG Ally was .. “I’ve found a new production tool.”
The Ally is ROG’s first Windows 11 gaming handheld powered by an all-new AMD Ryzen processor for 1080p action. But don’t let the gaming housing fool you, this is a fully featured Window 11 PC with desktop-like specs. Check it out.

“Before the ROG Ally, handhelds were limited, only offering certain games often at lower resolutions and framerates,” said Shawn Yen, Vice General Manager of Gaming BU, ASUS.
“We spent five years working to elevate that experience. The ROG Ally offers high performance in Full HD on a platform that can play all your games, anywhere you go.”
I found it interesting that the target weight was 600 grams. They got close with 608. There’s no real science behind it but it sits nicely in the hand.
We’re getting a review unit so keep an eye out for it when it drops.
