ASUS ROG Ally leaks again with two model variants and AMD Ryzen 7 7840U APU
VideoCardz has obtained new information about the ROG Ally, ASUS' first gaming handheld. Over the weekend, we discussed that ASUS plans to introduce the ROG Ally sooner than most people may have expected. According to The Phawx, ASUS will launch the ROG Ally for between US$650 and US$700, with the company targeting the most expensive version of the Steam Deck.
Now, VideoCardz has shared what it claims is a ROG Ally shipping manifest, shown below. As VideoCardz notes, the shipping manifest describes the ROG Ally as featuring the unreleased Ryzen 7 7840U, the Radeon 780M iGPU and 16 GB of RAM. Incidentally, the AOKZOE A1 Pro will also use the Ryzen 7 7840U, as may the AOKZOE A2.
However, ASUS has already confirmed that the ROG Ally will utilise a custom APU. Hence, it would appear that the gaming handheld will contain an APU based on the Ryzen 7 7840U, possibly like the Ryzen 5 4680U and Ryzen 7 4980U in the Surface Laptop 4 series. VideoCardz adds that ASUS has certified RC71L and RC71X models with the FCC, but we cannot find any corresponding records at the time of publication.
