Clearly, ASUS’s handheld console, the well-known ROG Ally, appeared to have labored effectively… So a lot so, actually, that the corporate is planning a second-generation console (ROG Ally 2?), which might effectively see the sunshine of day this yr! This is in response to Arnold Su, Vice President of Consumer and Gaming at ASUS India.
ROG Ally 2: a brand new console after the success of the primary technology!
For the second, it’s onerous to say what the console will appear like or what its options will likely be. However, since 2024 coincides with the arrival of the Strix Point, it’s not far-fetched to think about a console outfitted with an APU of this technology from AMD’s catalog. VideoCardz theorizes that the console may gain advantage from a CPU with 4 Zen5 cores and eight Zen5C cores. What’s extra, the iGPU might make some critical headway, with graphics primarily based on RDNA 3.5 and 16 compute items.
Of course, these are simply suppositions, particularly as there are many different parts to take note of. We’re pondering of the quantity and kind of RAM, storage and its interface, and the display screen, its decision and the kind of slab used.
Nevertheless, ASUS is engaged on a second model of its console as a result of the primary bought effectively. The Indian consultant reviews that over 70k consoles have been bought in India alone.
Clearly, the market is in demand too, since, as we’ve seen, MSI introduced its Claw at CES. But issues are going even additional, because the model with the dragon is alleged to be engaged on the following three generations of the console, though the primary has not but been launched… But these are simply rumors.
