ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has unveiled the ROG Ally X, the latest iteration of its popular handheld gaming console, promising significant hardware enhancements to elevate the Windows 11 gaming experience. The ROG Ally X retains the AMD Ryzen™ Z1 Extreme processor but introduces upgraded storage, memory, battery, and ergonomic improvements.

Enhanced Storage, Memory, and Battery:

  • Storage: The ROG Ally X comes with a 1 TB M.2 2280 SSD, doubling the capacity of the original model’s 512 GB, allowing ample space for modern games.
  • Memory: It features 24 GB of LPDDR5X-7500 RAM, providing more flexibility and better performance for AAA titles that demand high VRAM for detailed textures.
  • Battery: The console is equipped with an 80 Wh battery, offering significantly longer gaming sessions away from power outlets, while maintaining a balanced weight distribution for comfort during extended use.

Improved Controls and Connectivity:

  • Ergonomics: The redesigned chassis sports a black colorway with deeper handles and a more rounded shape. The button layout has been adjusted for a more ergonomic angle, enhancing comfort and reducing accidental presses on the back macro buttons.
  • Joysticks and D-Pad: New, durable joysticks with a 5-million-cycle lifespan and stiffer springs provide a familiar response curve. The D-Pad has been refined for precise eight-direction input, ideal for fighting and retro games.
  • Connectivity: Responding to user feedback, the ROG Ally X now includes two USB-C® ports, one with Thunderbolt™ compatibility, replacing the original XG Mobile port, thus offering greater flexibility with third-party docks and external GPUs.

Advanced Thermal Management:

  • Cooling System: The ROG Ally X incorporates new fans that are 23% smaller with 50% thinner blades, enhancing airflow. Additional air tunnels direct air through a third exhaust vent, increasing overall airflow by 24%. This design keeps the device and touch screen cooler, enhancing comfort during long gaming sessions.


The ROG Ally X is set to redefine portable Windows gaming with these substantial upgrades, ensuring gamers have the power, flexibility, and comfort needed for an exceptional gaming experience.
