Gaming Hardware of the Year
A more powerful alternative to the Steam DeckUNITED KINGDOM 05/11/2023More
Performance is smooth, framerates are up, and I have no doubt this handheld is ready to take on whatever 2024 throws at us.UNITED KINGDOM 12/07/2023More
The Ally is lighter with a more appealing design that’s extremely comfortable to use over long periods of times. It also has a stunning full HD touch display and extraordinary audio performance. And while you will definitely be turning down a few settings to play some of the more graphically demanding games, once you get everything up and running, it really is a fun experience.UNITED STATES 05/11/2023More

The Asus ROG Ally is not an outright Steam Deck killer, but smart hardware, software, and design decisions make for a fun, exciting Windows-based handheld game console.UNITED STATES 05/11/2023More
I think it's a steal
The performance really stands out on this device
This is a strong portable gaming competitor
I've had some serious fun with this.
I think this is going to be a real winner
This is basically the device I've dreamed of, ever since I was 10 years old!
Twice as fast as the Steam Deck and it's pretty much handled everything that I've thrown at it.
Wow, this is like playing on my main PC!
ROG Ally - New Windows Gaming Handheld Launch Event
Where I do think ASUS has the opportunity to grab the market is in new PC adopters. People who don’t own a PC and don’t have the cash to build one. For R16,000, this is a fantastic option. Slap on a Game Pass subscription and a Steam Summer Sale session and you have yourself a pretty great platform.
"...The ASUS ROG Ally is the most powerful handheld gaming console right now, but you can push it to the extreme by connecting Nvidia RTX 4090 laptop graphics with ASUS’s XG Mobile!"
The ROG Ally is the best handheld gaming PC on the market, and probably the best budget gaming PC full stop.

The Asus ROG Ally truly feels like the portable Xbox Game Pass machine that many fans have been clamoring for
IGNUNITED KINGDOM 05/12/2023More
The Asus ROG Ally has taken the philosophy of Valve's Steam Deck and turned the dial up to 11 in every aspect.

"It also allows the ROG Ally to have VRR which is an absolute godsend in smoothing out frame rates which is a big deal in a device like this."

"There’s no doubt that the ROG Ally is a great-looking device and it performed very well during my short time with it."
Shane The Gamer
The ASUS ROG Ally is an incredibly ambitious device that has entered the portable PC gaming market somewhat in its infancy.
"The ROG ALLY is now available and offers a truly portable gaming experience."
"It makes my PC game library accessible in a way that the most powerful computer would fail to by making playing them a console-like experience..."
Perhaps the biggest thing the Ally has going for it is Windows 11.
I'm still mind-blown that this device is capable of delivering Xbox One S-like performance in a device as small and portable as this.
A powerful handheld gaming PC, the ROG Ally capably fills the Steam Deck-shaped hole in Australia. If it had a dedicated OS instead of Windows 11, it'd be even better.
