ASUS ROG Ally is powered by the latest Ryzen Z1 Series processors from AMD. Built on the “Zen 4” architecture combined with AMD RDNA 3 architecture-based graphics, Ryzen Z1 Extreme processors rival the power of gaming consoles, with 8 cores, 16 threads, and up to 8.6 teraflops of graphics processing power.

According to ASUS ROG, AMD Ryzen Z1 variants will be available in 2023 with 6 cores and 12 threads. Both models support AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution and AMD Radeon Super Resolution technologies.

Our team has spent over a decade developing the technology required to enable the Ryzen Z1 Series processors. Working with visionary partners like ROG, we’ve designed a platform that redefines mobile gaming. We’re excited for gamers to experience the first device powered by Ryzen Z1 Series processors with the launch of ROG Ally.

ASUS ROG Ally is powered by the ROG Zero Gravity thermal system which uses a dual-fan system with ultrathin heatsink fins and high-friction heat pipes to ensure Ally stays cool in any orientation.

In addition, the handheld also features a 120 Hz FHD (1080p) touchscreen with AMD FreeSync Premium technology. The screen also has a maximum brightness of 500 nits, allowing gamers to easily track the action in more challenging environments, such as outdoors.

This touchscreen display also serves to allow seamless navigation of Windows 11 when gamers need to change settings or install the next game.

The Ryzen Z1 Extreme model equipped with 512 GB of storage will be available for pre-order starting May 11, 2023 and available for sale for 699 USD on June 13, 2023. The ROG Ally model with a Ryzen Z1 processor and 512 GB SSD will be available later this year for 599 USD.
