A New Version Of Wildy Popular Asus ROG Ally Is In the Works

Asus has been famous for its first handheld PC, the Asus ROG Ally. The popular handheld gaming PC has had its downside, with issues with the microSD, but still, the device sold well. According to the latest reports, the popular PC maker is now working on the updated version of the device, dubbed the Asus ROG Ally X. The highly anticipated device will act as a mid-fresh, just like what Valve did with the Steam Deck OLED.

The wildly popular ROG Ally will be a new revision for 2024. The cherry on top is that it’s packing some big modifications. Whitson Gordon, Asus’ senior manager of marketing for gaming content stated:

“This is more than a basic refresh… at the same time, it’s not a full redesign. It’s somewhere in between”

Asus ROG Ally X Unveiled During A Live Stream For ROG Pulse

According to the latest reports, the Ally X is tipped to feature some big improvements. However, Asus has not shared the changes specifically. One of the biggest changes the company hinted at is the battery capacity. During a live stream for ROG Pulse, Asus’s senior marketing manager revealed that there will not be just a small battery improvement. The battery of the upcoming handheld PC will boast more than 40% capacity. It’s still unclear how much progress we’ll see, but Asus claims it’s significant.

Asus also hinted at advancements in RAM and storage. As per reports, the Ally X will have more than 16GB of memory. The device will use a large M.2 2280 SSD, making it easier and cheaper to upgrade your storage. On the other hand, it seems the Ally X will use the same internals and 1080p screen while Asus works on the Ally 2. The company is expected to share full details on the Ally X on June 2. Anyhow, Asus has confirmed that the Ally X will be more expensive than the original model.

Other than the hardware, Asus also teased Armoury Crate 1.5. It is the software that Ally X will use. This updated version will be available for the original model as well. It will come with an entirely new interface, new layouts, and filters for your games, making it easier to get around. So are you guys excited?

Users will be able to uninstall games from the app now. Moreover, they can access AMD’s Fluid Motion Frames (AFMF). In addition, Asus will allow users to share button mappings for games, just like how Valve handles controller profiles on the Steam Deck. The company will reportedly launch Armoury Crate 1.5 in July, potentially hinting at when the Ally X will hit store shelves. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait much longer to learn more about this device.
