The console was estimated in Europe at 800 euros, in the US the price is less – $ 700. The novelty will appear on sale on June 13. And in the third quarter of this year, Asus will release a simpler version – the usual Asus ROG Ally, not “extreme”. It will receive a 6-core processor with a stripped-down GPU (4 execution units instead of 12) and an SSD half the size – 256 GB. The price will be lower by 100 euros/dollars.
