ASUS ROG Ally X: New gaming handheld with improvements unveiled

ASUS has finally officially unveiled its new gaming handheld at Computex 2024. The ASUS ROG Ally X comes with a number of improvements, including more RAM and a battery that is twice as large.

The ASUS ROG Ally X in detail

ASUS officially confirmed the ROG Ally X a few weeks ago and has now officially unveiled the device at Computex 2024. Among other things, the battery of the gaming handheld has grown significantly: the battery has 80 watt hours inside and is therefore as large as in the normal Ally (our test), which will continue to be sold.

In practice, this should actually make twice as long runtimes possible. However, not much has changed in terms of dimensions. At 208.2 mm x 116.5 mm x 32.4 mm, the Ally X is around 4.5 mm deeper, but weighs slightly more at 678 grams (instead of 608 grams).

Thanks to rounded edges, the gaming handheld, which is now black in color, should nevertheless offer more comfort during use. Other design changes include a new, more precise D-pad and smaller M-buttons on the back.

Armoury Crate SE 1.5 is used as the interface, which is designed with a console-level UI and is extensively customizable. It is possible to share button layouts with other players. Windows 11 will continue to be used as the operating system.

More memory

ASUS has also equipped the handheld with 24 GB (instead of 16 GB) of LPDDR5 memory, which also works faster at 7,500 MHz (instead of 6,400 MHz). The internal memory is also doubled to 1 terabyte, while this is now stored on an M.2 2280 SSD, which should make upgrades easier.

In addition, the ROG XG Mobile port on the top for connecting an external graphics card has been reduced and replaced by a second USB-C port. This works in the USB4 standard, is Thunderbolt-compatible and also offers the option of connecting external graphics cards thanks to a bandwidth of 40 GBit/s.

The UHS-II microSD card reader has been repositioned slightly in order to solve the overheating problems of the first model.

The ASUS ROG Ally X’s display and chip remain unchanged. The new handheld also relies on a 7-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1080p, a brightness of 500 nits and a refresh rate of 120 Hz.

Under the hood is once again the AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor with 8 cores and clock speeds of up to 5.10 GHz, which has a TDP of 9-30 watts and an AMD Radeon iGPU with up to 8.6 teraflops.

The cooling system of the ASUS ROG Ally X has been slightly downsized, but according to the manufacturer, it should offer better cooling performance and a significantly improved airflow thanks to new fans and a more efficient system.

Price and availability

The ASUS ROG Ally X (model RC72LA) starts at a recommended retail price of 899.99 euros and will be available for pre-order shortly. Additional details can be found on the manufacturer’s official product website.
