In addition to some firmware issues, the ASUS console also seems to have problems with the MicroSD card readersince some users have reported problems in some specific situations.
So has confirmed it ASUS Senior Content Marketing Manager, who has communicated that under certain thermal stress conditions, card readers including ASUS ROG Ally may fail. It has also communicated that an update will be released to further adjust the minimum and default fan speeds.
ASUS ROG Ally includes a MicroSD card reader near the VRMs of the board, this can cause the reader to experience temperatures near or above those recommended for some microSD cardswhich can cause slow operation, or even stop working in the worst case.
Despite having M.2 SSD storage, ASUS ROG Ally has included this reader as it provides portability to power add several more GB drives in a tiny form factor that’s great for transporting, purpose for which this ASUS portable console was born. A good functioning of the card reader is essential for those users who want to take advantage of this feature, adding games by simply switching between different cards.
For now there is no specific solution for this problem, but ASUS is working to offer a permanent solution and to be able to use the reader included in the console in a normal way.
