Asus, a Taiwanese PC manufacturer, has unveiled the pricing details for its PC gaming handheld device, the ROG Ally, in Australia and New Zealand. The higher-end variant, equipped with an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor and 512GB of storage, will cost AUD $1,299 in Australia and NZD $1,499 in New Zealand. The release date is set for June 13, 2023, coinciding with the global launch.
JB Hi-Fi retail stores in Australia and New Zealand, along with PB Tech stores in New Zealand, will exclusively sell the ROG Ally. Asus plans to announce the pricing for the lower-tier model, featuring a standard AMD Ryzen Z1 processor, at a later date for the Australian and New Zealand markets.
Before the North American and UK versions of the ROG Ally AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme are announced, priced at USD $699 and GBP £699 respectively, Asus has released the pricing information for the Australian and New Zealand markets. The lower-tier model’s release is scheduled after June 13, 2023.
Initial impressions and reviews of the ROG Ally suggest that it is a powerful handheld PC console, offering more capabilities than Valve’s Steam Deck. However, some reviewers have pointed out concerns about its relatively short battery life and issues with its Windows 11 interface.
JB Hi-Fi is currently accepting pre-orders for the Asus ROG Ally.
