Asus ROG Ally has received mixed reviews and it appears that the company is attempting to salvage the console’s reputation in the run-up to the launch, indicating that substantial upgrades are being worked on behind the scenes that will result in considerable improvements before it reaches consumers’ hands.
Asus opted to seed review units of its Asus ROG Ally to a number of prominent newspapers before finalising the product’s hardware or software, and while the power was there, the console was criticised for its low battery life and awful software optimisations.
Those who had pre-ordered the Asus ROG Ally console felt cautious as a result of the poor press, and Galip Fu, the director of consumer and gaming PC brands at Asus, stated that roughly 10% of pre-orders were cancelled as a result of the unfavourable press.
The new information comes from an interview conducted by The Verge, and thus there has been a silver lining in sending units out early, as the Asus team has been able to take in feedback, go back and look into some of the flaws and complaints noticed in online reviews. In terms of modifications, Asus claims that the battery life on retail units of the Asus ROG Ally would be increased by 10 to 20% due to “various software tweaks.”
Another significant difference in the retail version will be the ability to disable some of Asus ROG Ally’s AMD Z1 Extreme CPU cores, which might be quite useful for games that don’t require as much processing power. The interview reveals how the team first focused too much on optimising Asus ROG Ally’s power at 30W and 50W and neglected to investigate the device’s performance at lower wattages. Because there is a lot of competition, the new revisions should bring about significant changes.
