Unleash the Ultimate Gaming Powerhouse: The ASUS ROG Ally X Handheld Console

If you’re into handheld gaming, here’s the new king of the mountain: the ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has just announced a new gaming handheld called the ROG Ally X, and it is going to be the fastest, longest-lasting, highest-performance handheld gaming device on the market. Featuring a unique blend of top-of-the-line competitive technology, including maxed-out components, extreme cooling, and precision controls, it delivers gaming in a next-generation handheld form factor. Here are all the details of this masterpiece.

ASUS ROG Ally X: A Leap into the Future of Handheld Gaming

ASUS is now pre-ordering its ROG Ally X handheld gaming PC and, after a brief launching period on 22 July, it’s available to gaming enthusiasts for the price of $1,599. The anticipation is understandable, as the ROG Ally X won’t compete in the gaming console park; it will, in fact, be a powerful gaming PC held in your hand.

Engineered for Excellence: The Power That Fuels ROG Ally X

At the ROG Ally X’s core is the AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor, which helps make this console a powerhouse of performance, in conjunction with a brand-new 1TB SSD for fast load times and an absolutely awe-inspiring 24GB LPDDR5X-7500 RAM. An extended architecture for video RAM sharing helps make this machine even more graphically savvy. The ‘Console,’ as a form factor, goes after the biggest slice of the gaming pie, and with good reason: the accessibility of engaging in PC gaming from the comfort of your couch, paired with the simple ability to turn it on and experience the magic of whatever captivating title you desire is a delightful prospect indeed.

Redesigned for the Ultimate Gaming Experience

In every organic detail – from the curved shape of the console to the placement of the buttons to the curvature of the joysticks, the RAZER Respiration technology of the fans to their cowling, blade thickness and number and the air tunnels that wind around them – the ROG Ally X exudes an ergonomic excellence that one rarely finds in a handheld system. The ROG Ally X goes to great lengths to keep the device cool. Miniaturised fans, with thinned blades and new air tunnels are all part of a grand design. In the world of handheld gaming, these little touches make a world of difference.

Connectivity and Expandability: A Gamer's Delight

ASUS has also thrown in an upgrade: it swapped out the XG Mobile port with two flexible USB-C ports, including one Thunderbolt-ready, which will improve the device’s expansion capabilities and positive overall experience. Now, users can take advantage of upgrading the storage on the redesigned motherboard in Zephyrus G14. Recently, the Waluigi-shaped keyboard layout of the Zephyrus G14 became a craze on Twitter and Reddit.

Superior Battery for Uninterrupted Gameplay

Its 80Wh battery in the ROG Ally X – double the 40Wh battery of the ROG Ally – means you won’t need to hunt for sockets to keep up with your favourite worlds. The impressive leap highlights ASUS’s commitment to perfecting a gaming experience on the go that won’t make you dependent on cumbersome charging.

The Ultimate On-the-Go Gaming Experience

‘We are thrilled with the launch of the ROG Ally X,’ says Bradley Howe, GM at ASUS Australia, Consumer, Systems Business Group. ‘After the overwhelming response to [the] ROG Ally, we listened back to our customers, and we are excited to introduce the ROG Ally X, a console built on innovations in battery, thermal cooling and storage for the gamer who seeks a strong gaming experience on the go.’

Where to Get Your Hands on the ROG Ally X

The wait is at an end. ASUS’s ROG Ally X is available for pre-order in Australia and New Zealand through the ASUS E-shop and selected retail partners. Available for $1,599 in Australia and $1,799 in New Zealand, the time for the next generation of handheld gaming communication is now.

Cutting-Edge Specifications

The ASUS ROG Ally X hasn't just upped the game: it redefined portable possibility. It has a 7” FHD display, Gorilla® Glass Victus, AMD FreeSync Premium, dual-channel memory, and PCIe® G4x4 SSD: they all make the experience amazing and vivid.
