TurboFHD (1080 x 1920)45-7025-30 W60 min

A. Turbo Mode with 1080p Resolution UPTO 120

The Turbo Mode on the Asus ROG Ally is the most powerful and high battery-consuming mode that runs at 30 Watts. On Turbo Mode, you can play most CPU-intensive games at 80 to 90 frame rates at Full HD resolution. However, the battery life is not extensive under the Turbo Mode, so you may have to compromise.

So, with the Turbo Mode enabled at 1080p resolution, you can get up to 45-70 frame rates with in-game graphics settings set on low and FSR on Auto.

B. Performance Mode with 1080p Resolution at 60Hz

The performance mode offers a little less than the Turbo Mode, and it’s recommended if you’re satisfied with 50 to 60 frame rates at 1080p resolution. But do remember that we have not brought the in-game graphics settings under the account, so the benchmarks are still purely based on what the console’s pre-set gaming profile offers.

Performance Mode Cyberpunk 2077

With the performance mode enabled, Cyberpunk 2077 runs at 30-50 frame rates with 1080p resolution; that is quite an output since we are only talking about 15 Watts of power consumption here. Therefore, you can get up to 120 min on this profile which is still not bad for a handheld gaming console.
