New and improved ASUS ROG Ally X battery life is just what it needs to compete with the Steam Deck

Yet another leak for the ASUS ROG Ally X points towards as much as 8 hours of battery, but how does that compare to the competition?

Honestly, I really like this updated version. But it doesn't solve the biggest flaw that the original had for me: the Z1 Extreme APU. Yes, it's an extremely powerful part, but it is not part of AMD's Adrenalin driver update program, so it's dependent on Asus for driver updates. And unfortunately, Asus doesn't have a stellar record of support for their devices.

Up to 8 hours basically just means the least demanding games. AAA gaming at highest wattage would probably be about 2-3 hours which is good compared to just about 1 hour with the current ally. The OLED Deck can do about 2-3hrs.

With much less performance so that makes sense.

The Steamdeck shines at the lower TDP end but gets absolutely mopped at the high end.

Similar longevity with much better performance is a big win for the Ally X

Too bad Asus are all awful company.


They used to be the best when it comes to motherboards, now I will never buy anything from them again.

8 hrs yea right. Running tetris?

Only after setting the screen brightness to the lowest level, of course.

They tested the battery life watching a game of Tetris in 360p. Running Tetris natively brought the number down slightly to 1 hour and 38 minutes. 😂

Nope. The only improvements I want to hear is better customer support. Otherwise, I can't be bothered.

I Think It's About Time I Accept That The Dragon Age We All Knew Is Long Gone

Hanzala from eXputer: "With Dragon Age: The Veilguard beginning a new, action-focused, hero-style era, it's clear that Dragon Age is no longer what I remember."

“ beginning a new, action-focused, hero-style era”
This isn’t the beginning of any new era, it will be DOA like the Dungeon’s and Dragons Dark Alliance reboot train wreck in 2021

I agree but unlike that game were no talent hack's were used this game will fail because its going by the clipboard and is being made by people that got the job for who they are instead of what they know/can do.

Look at the game director's vision here official blog 2nd game sense left collage was in diapers when the first one was being thought of during kotar days.

Did they hire vets na this person the esg said so.

You can tell no one in bioware knows what dragon age keep is and no one played the old games back in the pre 2010 era.

Everyone should watch the netflix anime that is cannon which happens before this game in fact the gameplay of this game shows some stuff from that show. That netflix show reveals just how few left knows the lore/art style/combat
