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 70-90 frame rates with normal game settings.

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.

With the performance mode enabled, GTA V runs at 60 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 90 min or more on this profile which is still not bad for a handheld gaming console.
