Full HD AAA gaming in the palm of your hand

The ROG Ally offers Full HD gaming on the go with superior performance for modern AAA titles. Running on Windows 11, it supports games from any platform and comes with three months of Xbox Game Pass. Gamers can play solo, connect to a TV with friends, or enhance the gaming experience with the ROG XG Mobile suite of external GPUs.

The Ally is powered by an all-new AMD Ryzen Z1 Series processor. The Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor rivals the prowess of game consoles, featuring 8 cores, 16 threads, and up to 8.6 teraflops of graphics processing power. The Ryzen Z1 variant, which will be available in August, has 6 cores and 12 processing threads. Both models support AMD FidelityFXSuper Resolution and AMD Radeon Super Resolution upscaling technologies.

The Ally incorporates the ROG Zero Gravity thermal system for efficient cooling. It uses a dual-fan system with ultrathin heatsink fins and high-friction heat pipes to ensure the Ally stays cool in any orientation.

Other features of the Ally include a 120 Hz FHD touchscreen with AMD FreeSync Premium technology, 16GB LPDDR5 RAM, 512GB of PCIe Gen 4 storage, a UHS-II microSD card slot, and WiFi 6E.

Play all your games

ROG has collaborated with Microsoft, game publishers, and individual studios to ensure that gamers using the Ally have the best experience possible. Full support for Steam, the EA App, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass, the Epic Games Store, GOG Galaxy 2.0, Android apps, and other game platforms ensures that no matter where users download their games, the Ally has them covered.

As mentioned, the Ally comes bundled with a free three-month Xbox Game Pass subscription, giving gamers instant access to Microsoft’s game library the moment they unbox the machine. Xbox Game Pass members have access to hundreds of games, including hits like Minecraft Legends, Grounded, Age of Empire IV, and many more.
