ASUS recently released updates for the ROG Ally handheld, introducing several enhancements. Notably, these updates bring support for AMD’s HYPR-RX technology and 900p resolution, alongside various bug fixes.
The most significant addition to the ASUS ROG Ally is the support for AMD’s HYPR-RX, enabling users to utilize three key features: Radeon Boost, Radeon Anti-Lag+, and Radeon Super Resolution. With the ROG Ally’s AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme APU, which boasts an RDNA 3 graphics chip, gamers can take full advantage of these technologies. This results in an improved and smoother gaming experience with higher FPS in supported games. It’s worth noting that AMD is planning to introduce AFMF (Fluid Motion Frames) technology to APUs in the near future, following the completion of its technical preview.
Furthermore, ASUS ROG Ally handheld users will now have the option to select a 1600×900 resolution mode, complementing the existing 1080p and 720p choices. This update also addresses bugs in various titles, including Resident Evil Village. Additionally, a new BIOS update is accessible, providing improved system stability, and there are enhancements to the Aura RGB plugin.
