Asus ROG Ally X Specifications Leak Ahead of Debut, Will Reportedly Pack Larger Battery and More Memory

Asus ROG Ally X is expected to be unveiled within the next couple of weeks and the specifications of the handheld gaming console have been leaked online ahead of its debut. It will arrive as an updated version of the first-generation ROG Ally, instead of a successor, and the details of the handset suggest some highly requested hardware improvements are coming to the ROG Ally X. These include an improved battery and more, higher-bandwidth memory that should boost the device’s performance.

Asus ROG Ally X specifications (expected)

A VideoCardz report states that the Asus ROG Ally X will be equipped with a much larger 80Whr battery that should allow users to play games for longer — the original device arrived with a 40Whr battery and users complained of short battery life on the original console,

Another area that will be improved when the ROG Ally X arrives is in the memory department — the company equipped the ROG Ally with 16GB of RAM, while the ROG Ally will arrive with 24GB of LPDDR5 memory. It will also offer higher memory bandwidth — 7,500MHz, up from 6,400MHz on the current model.

According to the report the ROG Ally X will be equipped with the same AMD Ryzen Z1 Ultimate APU that powers the first-generation ROG Ally. Similarly, the 7-inch full-HD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate will be retained on the upcoming device.

Asus will also replace the fan from the first-generation ROG Ally with one that is 23 percent smaller and features fins that are 50 percent thinner than their predecessor, leading to a 10 percent improvement in airflow on the upcoming ROG Ally X.

Thanks to the larger battery, the dimensions and weight of the ROG Ally X have also increased. As per the report, the device will be 36.9mm, which means it will be 4.5mm thicker than the original model. It will reportedly weigh 678g, which is 70g more than the ROG Ally. We can expect to learn more about the Asus ROG Ally X — such as the rumoured $799 (roughly Rs. 66,400) pricing and availability — at Computex 2024, which kicks off on June 4.
