Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain is a stealth action-adventure game set in an open world during the Cold War. Players control Punished “Venom” Snake as he builds a new mercenary army and seeks revenge against the organization that destroyed his previous one.
Increase the VRAM to 5GB you can learn how to do that here.
Create A 900p Resolution
Using the 900p resolution gives you a performance boost without having to drop all the way down to 720p. You can learn how to create the custom resolution here.
Open up the Command Center, go to settings and add the AMD RIS shortcut.
Now you can enable AMD RIS in your Armoury Crate shortcuts.
If that doesn’t work you can Open up the AMD Software by clicking the AMD Software icon in your task bar.
Go to the gaming tab, click the game you want to enable AMD RIS and enable it.
In the preferences tab inside AMD Software you can enable the In-Game Overlay so you can see if AMD RIS is enabled when a game starts. (the shortcut key is alt + r)
Creating Manual 18W TDP
Open up Armoury Crate, click Settings and then click Operating Mode.
Click Manual and then select a manual mode in the drop down menu to edit. Change all three settings under CPU to this.
Next you want to adjust the fan curves for Fan 1 and 2 to look like mine or to your preference.
You can save your settings by clicking the check mark and rename your settings by clicking the 3 dots next to the checkmark.
Applying 18w mode to the Game
Go to Game Library in Armoury Crate, highlight the game you want to edit and press X on your controller. Click Configuration, then click Operating Mode DC and select the custom operating mode you just created.
The custom mode will be automatically applied the next time you launch the game.
You can easily play Metal Gear Solid V at Turbo Mode with most of the settings at high and get a 60fps experience but I decided to aim for more battery by locking the TDP to 18W and switching the resolution to the custom 900p. With my settings I averaged 50-60fps making this a smooth longer lasting experience on the Ally.
