We’re having a look at how to set up Radeon Super Resolution on the ASUS ROG Ally.

The ASUS ROG Ally specs reveal a portable gaming device that is seriously powerful. So much so that it even outperforms the Steam Deck. Part of what keeps its performance so high is specific gaming features such as AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) and Radeon Super Resolution (RSR).

As FSR is a feature that can only be activated in compatible games you will often find yourself having to turn to Radeon Super Resolution if you’re looking to boost performance while keeping the resolution high. RSR uses your graphics card to generate the frames of your game at a lower resolution and then scale them up almost instantly to the native resolution of your display. In the case of the ASUS ROG Ally that is 1080p.

How to setup Radeon Super Resolution on ASUS ROG Ally

The process for setting up Radeon Super Resolution is fast and simple. Follow the steps below to up the performance of your ASUS ROG Ally.

  • Open the game you want to activate RSR on.
  • Open the graphic or display setting of the game.
  • Set the game to run in full-screen.
  • Reduce the resolution to 1280x720p.
  • Exit the game and open the Ally Command Center.
  • Click AMD RSR to toggle it on.
  • Relaunch the game.

In the settings of the game, it will still look as though the game is running in 720p, but in actual fact the driver is scaling the resolution up to the full 1080p capabilities of the ROG Ally. This gives you crisp graphics with superior performance.

Note that AMD Radeon Super Resolution will only work when the game is set to a resolution lower than 1080p. If it is already generating graphics at 1080p, even if RSR is on, it will not actually be doing anything as there is nowhere to upscale the resolution to.

If you are having any kinds of issues activating Radeon Super Resolution, one possible troubleshoot would be to perform a factory reset, then check our guide on how to set-up the ASUS ROG Ally correctly.
