A few days ago, ASUS officially introduced the ROG Ally portable controller and revealed the first concrete information about its specifications. Soon after, AMD also published its material on the Ryzen Z1 and Ryzen Z1 Extreme processors, which will be the heart of the Taiwanese device. Asus has not yet confirmed the price of the console – this information will be officially revealed on May 11, during the company’s global event. However, there’s a good chance we’ve already known this information before. The American BestBuy chain has published a product price tag.
According to previously published information from the BestBuy store, the ASUS ROG Ally controller in the version with AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme will be $ 699. This is less than we expected.

The BestBuy store chain is the official partner of ASUS when introducing the ROG Ally console to the market, so it can be assumed that the price it offers will be more or less true to reality. The version with AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme (that is, a system with 8 Zen 4 cores and a Radeon graphics system with 12 CU RDNA 3 blocks), 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and a 512 GB PCIe 4.0 SSD will be priced at $ 699. That’s not much more than the current price of the Steam Deck with a 512GB drive ($649), but we’re talking about a more powerful model here.

At this price, ASUS ROG Ally will be able to compete fiercely with Steam Deck in favor of gamers. We’re interested in the price of the lower model with an AMD Ryzen Z1 and 256GB SSD, which should still offer decent performance, especially with FSR or active RSR. At the moment, everything indicates that the ASUS ROG Ally mobile console will be the cheapest when it comes to using AMD Phoenix series APUs. This, in turn, gives a good chance that the device will become a real hit of sales.
