ASUS ROG Ally X Specs Leak – Double The Battery, Two USB-C Ports and More

The specs of the announced-but-not-detailed ASUS ROG Ally X have leaked online. ASUS confirmed the ROG Ally X earlier this month during a special live stream. However, at the time the ASUS didn’t share any specific details related to the device’s specs. The company only confirmed it would include improved battery life.

ASUS is expected to showcase the ROG Ally X on 2 June during its Computex announcement stream. However, specs have leaked beforehand. According to VideoCardz, the ASUS ROG Ally X has doubled the battery capacity to 90Wh. That is up from the original 40Wh. This is the largest battery we have seen in a gaming handheld.

The ROG Ally X is also still as lightweight as ever. Even with the larger battery, it only weighs 70g and is only 5mm thicker than the previous model. This is thanks to a new redesigned cooling system on the device. The report says the fans are now 23% smaller with 50% thinner fins. It also increases airflow by 10%.

ASUS has also added a new USB-C port to the ROG Ally X. The port includes USB4 speeds and according to the report, has replaced the proprietary eGPU port that ASUS originally included on the device.

We already know that the ROG Ally X won’t increase the performance from a CPU perspective. It will still include the AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme chip. However, the report now says the device packs 24GB of faster LPDDR5 RAM. This is an extra 8GB of RAM compared to the original model.

This extra RAM will give the GPU some more overhead to work with and will most definitely improve performance in games.

From a design perspective, the ROG Ally X still looks similar. The report says it will include a new D-pad but there’s no word on any other physical changes. When it comes to the pricing, the leak suggests ASUS will sell the ROG Ally X for $799.

ASUS will confirm all of this next month during its Computex showcase. We will have all the news on the local launch as soon as we hear more. Given how popular the original ROG Ally was, the new revision will likely gain some attention too. You can catch up on my review of the original model here and watch it below.
