Additional ROG Ally X information

The ROG Ally X features the same AMD Z1 Extreme processor as the original ROG Ally. So you can expect it to still play the same games via Windows 11. The ROG Ally X will help you play your favorite games whether you're accessing Game Pass, opening Steam, diving into Epic Games Store, or using one of the many other gaming services out there. 

But having a larger capacity battery should help to significantly increase battery life. Meanwhile, increased RAM and SSD will provide more storage space for your game files while helping the system run smoothly. Plus, there are all of those other small updates to the casing and controls that should make the gaming experience better. 

If you're wanting to upgrade your ROG Ally to the new ROG Ally X or want to purchase it as your first PC gaming handheld then make sure to snag your own ROG Ally X preorder while they're available.
