Today, Huawei’s consumer business CEO, Yu Chengdong, announced the official launch of Huawei Honor Play with the much publicized “very scary technology” which turned out to be GPU Turbo. This tech is a revolutionary graphics processing acceleration technology and it basically brings high performance, more power saving, high picture quality, and more cool play.
Talking about the “very scary technology”, Yu Chengdong said that in the past 10 years, the demand for graphics processing on smartphones has increased by leaps and bounds, whether the resolution is from VGA to 1080P, 2K or even 4K. At the same time, AR/VR and complex image rendering have become increasingly popular, all of which impose extremely high demands on mobile image processing capabilities. At present, due to a series of technical limitations such as space, heat dissipation, and power consumption, the GPU of the mobile platform is difficult to completely match the bursting graphics requirements.
GPU Turbo achieves a great improvement in graphics processing efficiency and reduces power consumption through the optimization of software and hardware. Yu Chengdong stated that GPU Turbo broke through the processing bottleneck between the EMUI operating system, the GPU, and the CPU thereby achieving a great improvement in the graphics processing efficiency of the entire system.
According to the officially measured data, GPU Turbo can improve graphics processing efficiency by up to 60% and SoC power consumption by 30%. After Honor Play launch, several popular games were tested successfully and GPU Turbo a good job.
