If you’re looking for the best ASUS ROG Ally settings for performance, here they are.

The ROG Ally’s internal hardware is certainly impressive – with the ability to pump out fantastic performance on many Triple-A games. However, there’s a slight drawback with the battery life that may be preventing some gamers out there from getting the most out of their handheld.

We’re going to go over the best settings for the ASUS ROG Ally to eek out performance and optimal battery usage, so you can enjoy your games for as long as possible.

Best ASUS ROG Ally settings

We’d recommend going through a few of our guides before setting up the best settings. For starters, you’re going to want to have a look at our instructions on setting up your ASUS ROG Ally for the first time, alongside AMD Super Resolution.

ASUS ROG Ally graphics modes

First, we’d recommend choosing between Turbo or Performance Modes. The first option will crank up the power output of the handheld to 25W, while also increasing frame-rate and performance. The other option will reduce power output to 15W while also decreasing performance. This provides a far superior battery advantage, so you’re going to want to change between modes depending on which game you’re playing. You can access ASUS ROG Ally performance modes by pressing the Control Center button on the console.

There’s also a silent mode, which is only recommended if you’re playing the least graphically demanding games.

ASUS ROG Ally VRAM Allocation

If you end up playing a game that you know is going to be intensive on your Ally’s GPU – you could need to supply a little more VRAM to the device. Here’s how you can do that:

  • Open Armoury Crate
  • Head over to Settings then Operating Modes then GPU Settings.

There should be a Memory Assigned to GPU drop-down column which will be used to allocate memory. You can change the values here at will.

Enable or Disable FPS limiter

From the command center, you’re going to be able to enable or disable the FPS limiter. You can toggle this option to either get far better optimised frame rate, or uncapped frame-rate which will require more battery usage.
