Metal Gear Solid V ROG Ally Game Settings

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.
