ROG ALLY SD CARD ISSUES ARE DUE TO THERMAL CONDITIONS

ASUS released another statement regarding the ongoing ROG Ally SD Card issues. After internal testing, they confirmed that under certain thermal stress conditions, the SD card reader may malfunction. They plan to release an update that further fine-tunes the default and minimum fan speeds on the device to improve reliability while keeping fan noise in check.

This seems like a design flaw having the SD Card next to the heat output and I’m curious to see how these fan adjustments help alleviate SD Cards from failing.

Read their full statement below.
