The first update to hopefully fix the SD card malfunctioning issue is here! Recently, the ROG Ally has been having some issues potentially frying Micro SD cards and with ASUS ROG made aware, we are now seeing the first improvements made to fix this.


BIOS 322 is out now and modifies the Ally's fan curve in Turbo Mode, bringing it up to 35dBA when plugged in and 30dBA when not. This will make the fan a bit more loud, but should cool the device down a bit quicker, which could reduce any heat damage the SD card may get. It also fixes an issue that could cause the Ally to be stuck at the boot up loading screen when a password was configured in BIOS mode.

There was also an update for Armoury Crate that fixes some nice little bugs, but adds in some wonderful new features including more FPS limiter options (90 and 120), a new BIOS and Armoury Crate configuration info box under System settings, and a quick command for Alt+F4 to quickly exit and force close programs.

You can find the BIOS update in MyASUS and the Armoury Crate one in Armoury Crate!
