ASUS ROG Ally X detailed specs surface ahead of launch

ASUS has been teasing the successor to its ROG Ally handheld gaming computer for a while now. It’s named the ROG Ally X, an upgrade over the current Asus ROG Ally consoles.

According to reports by VIDEOCARDZ, here’s what to expect when it launches soon. The updated design keeps the Ryzen Z1 Extreme APU with 8 Zen4 cores and 12 RDNA3 Compute Units, same as before.

The 7-inch FHD 120Hz screen remains, but now with a larger battery to fix the previous issue of short battery life. The battery capacity is said to double to 80Wh.

Moreover, the Ally X will come with 24GB of LPDDR5(X)-7500 memory, up from the current 16GB, offering higher bandwidth for better integrated GPU performance. It will be slightly heavier at 678g and thicker at 36.9 mm.

The port for external GPU, previously ROG XG Mobile, has been upgraded to USB4 Type-C. For cooling, ASUS has upgraded the fan to be smaller and thinner, yet more efficient, improving airflow. The new design also includes a “Precision D-Pad” rated for 5 million cycles.

Connectivity-wise, it’s expected to feature Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, and run on Windows 11. ASUS plans to upgrade its Armoury Crate SE software to version 1.5 for a better user experience.

Launch date and pricing

The ROG Ally X will be officially unveiled at Computex on June 2, with pricing yet to be confirmed by ASUS, so the reported $799 price remains a rumor.
