Is Asus ROG Ally better than Valve's Steam Deck?
Valve's Steam Deck is currently one of the most popular handheld gaming PCs, and looking at its specs, it looks like it doesn't have a chance against the ROG Ally. The rumors suggest that Asus' device will come with a 7-inch touchscreen display that will offer a Full HD+ resolution, an aspect ratio of 16:9, and a refresh rate of 120Hz. It might also have a brightness of 500 nits, better than Steam Deck.
Asus ROG Ally's other rumored specs are that the handheld gaming PC will use AMD's Ryzen Z1 and Ryzen Z1 Extreme APUs on top of 16 GB of DDR5 RAM and 512 GB of PCIe 4.0 SSD storage. The pricing will also be official at the event, but it is expected to be around $650-700 for North American gamers.
Handheld gaming PCs are on the rise again thanks to their up-to-date technology to play some of the latest games in the market. You can carry them anywhere you want, as the whole concept is transforming a gaming PC into a portable device.Advertisement
