The first will be Asus ROG Ally

AMD has unveiled Ryzen Z1 APUs specifically for portable game consoles. It is these APUs that will underlie the Asus ROG Ally, but now it is clear that not only in it.

So, in total AMD introduced two models: Ryzen Z1 and Z1 Extreme. They differ quite a lot, and the performance of set-top boxes based on them will also vary greatly.

The Ryzen Z1 is configured with six Zen 4 processor cores and an RDNA 3 iGPU with 4 CUs, i.e. 256 stream processors. Although this is the latest architecture, there are very few blocks themselves. For example, the Steam Deck uses an APU with 512 p.p., albeit based on RDNA 2.

But the Ryzen Z1 Extreme is much more interesting. There are already eight processor cores and a top-end iGPU with 768 stream processors. Unfortunately, AMD doesn’t list frequencies, but does list TDPs of 15-30W. However, there is performance data both directly in games and in the form of TFLOPS. The Ryzen Z1 delivers 2.8 TFLOPS, while the Ryzen Z1 Extreme hits an impressive 8.6 TFLOPS! For comparison, the PlayStation 5 has 10.3 TFLOPS. 

From the rest, support for USB4 and LPDDR5X memory can be noted. Asus ROG Ally will be the first console based on Ryzen Z1.
