Asus has just made its Sony PSP 2023 alternative and it is called ROG Ally. Announced on April 1st 2023, the Asus ROG Ally could easily be fooled as anything on an April Fool’s Day, but we have been told it is not a lie.
Asus ROG Ally is a slate-type gaming PC with controllers on the left and right sides of the display – just like Sony PSP. Asus claims it features the fastest custom APU in collaboration with AMD. In this genre, many Chinese manufacturers such as GPD, ONEXPLAYER, AYANEO, AOKZOE, and Valve Steam Deck have come out, but finally ROG, which can be said to be the king of gaming PCs, will be show up as formidable competitor.
The size of the display is unknown, but it is estimated to be around 7 inches from watching the official video. According to the explanation given by Asus, it has full HD resolution and ensures brightness that is easy to see even under sunlight. In addition, by adopting ROG INTELLIGENT Cooling with dual fans ensures improved cooling performance and operates quietly while maintaining performance.
Asus ROG Ally supports the dedicated external GPU such as ROG XG Mobile eGPU, which improves graphics performance and allows you to play games on a large screen such as a TV while charging.
In addition, Asus ROG Ally has been revealed that Windows will be used as the OS, and it seems that the operation suitable for the controller is performed by launching the game through the familiar utility like Armoury Crate created by Asus.
