ASUS ROG Ally X Handheld Console: Confirmed Specifications Revealed

Published by

Recently leaked information reveals the specifications of the ASUS ROG Ally X, an upcoming handheld gaming console that upgrades significantly from its predecessor, the ROG Ally Extreme. This new model introduces substantial improvements in memory, storage, and battery capacity, addressing the limitations of the earlier version. One of the most notable changes is the relocation of the microSD card slot, which in the previous model was positioned next to a thermal vent, leading to frequent memory card failures. In the ROG Ally X, this design flaw has been corrected, enhancing the device's durability and user experience. The ROG Ally X is equipped with a 1TB M.2 drive, an upgrade from the 500GB storage in the original ROG Ally. This expansion is supported by a larger drive bay that accommodates M.2-2280 SSDs, offering users more flexibility and choices in storage solutions.

A significant enhancement in the ROG Ally X is its battery capacity, which now features an 80 Wh battery. This represents an approximate 40% improvement in battery life over its predecessor, enabling longer gaming sessions without the need for frequent recharging. The console continues to utilize the Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor, maintaining a high level of performance that users expect from the ROG product line. However, the memory has been upgraded extensively; the ROG Ally X boasts 24GB of LPDDR5X-7500 RAM, compared to the 16GB LPDDR5-6400 RAM in the ROG Ally Extreme. This adjustment not only increases the memory size by 50% but also enhances the memory bandwidth by 17%, ensuring smoother and more efficient operation, especially in memory-intensive applications and games.
