A couple of new updates have been released for the ROG Ally recently, with some awesome improvements that will help the device and game performance! There was a new BIOS released 3 days ago, revision 331, that enhanced the overall system stability, and on the 30th of this month, we will see an MCU update to fix a rate bug that swaps control modes and an Aura plugin update to align RGB brightness with the new updates.

But the biggest part of the updates is the GPU driver that has been updated. This new driver addresses a couple of bugs that prevented the ROG Ally from launching Resident Evil Village and EA Sports FC 24 from launching, and a bug that stopped the Ally from recognizing some 8K monitors. It also adds support for the 1600x900 resolution. This option can help us save some power from 1080p but keep it looking better than 720p. It is a nice balance between the two.


The driver also adds support for a new feature from AMD called HYPR-RX. This new technology will make Super Resolution, Anti-Lag, and Boost technologies all work together to boost performance even further and heavily reduce any latency. So far, the technology has been implemented in many games, including Cyberpunk 2077, Forza Horizon 5, Destiny 2, and more. You can enable HYPR-RX in AMD's Adrenaline software.


All of these can be updated either through the MyASUS app or the update center of Armoury Crate.
