Asus’ ROG Ally gaming laptop doesn’t look like an April Fools’ joke -Tc

The screen will deliver “Full HD gaming” and promises a quiet dual-fan design alongside the standard visible setup of dual analog sticks, left-mounted D-pad, and four face buttons, plus a few smaller buttons around the screen. to access menus and settings. Going beyond the Steam Deck platform, it even advertises the chance to “experience the full potential of Ally” by connecting the ROG XG mobile eGPU the company offers for use with its gaming laptops while streaming your games to a TV.

The trailer features actual games like High in life, move on, and WRC generations – unusual for a joke – and has a link to best buywhere players can sign up for pre-order information.

While Valve’s Steam Deck has been the most successful attempt to make PC gaming a truly portable experience, there are plenty of competitors, like the Ayaneo 2 or other Switch-like machines from GPD and OneXPlayer. However, in our experience, they have been based on an AMD 6800U chipset rather than a custom design, and generally lack the right mix of power and efficiency that we want to see in portable gaming machines.

More than anything, the machine featured in the video looks fully designed and ready to launch as a heavy-duty entry into the portable gaming market. It’s certainly more realistic than what Asus ROG (Republic of Gamers) posted on April Fool’s Day 2022, touting a “Smart Lens” concept for eye-controlled gestures that was later revealed to be a joke. Of course, Asus is also the company that just released this ROG Flow Z13 Acronym laptop that defies all belief and understanding.

We’ll have to wait and see if this Ally handheld still stands after the clock rolls down to April 2, but Asus certainly seems ready to take on the Steam Deck in this category sooner or later.
