On June 6, Chinese manufacturer, Huawei, released its newest flagship, Honor Play. In the release conference, Huawei’s CEO, Yu Chengdong, announced its “very scary technology” which is a revolutionary graphics processing acceleration technology called GPU Turbo. It claims to increase graphics processing efficiency by up to 60% and SOC power consumption by 30%.
Yu Chengdong said that Huawei Mate Series, P Series, Honor V10, Honor 10, and Honor 9i are all available for update. While Honor 9, Honor V9, Honor Play 7X, Honor 9 Youth Edition will start beta testing much later. As expected, the Huawei Mate 10 series has already started the recruitment of GPU Turbo technology adopters. Compatible models include:
Huawei Mate 10 Full Netcom Edition ALP-AL00, Mate 10 Mobile Custom Full Netcom Edition ALP-TL00, Mate 10 Pro Full Netcom Edition BLA-AL00 (including Porsche Design Edition), Mate 10 Pro Mobile Custom Full Netcom Edition BLA-TL00.

In addition to improving GPU performance and reducing power consumption, GPU Turbo can also bring HDR enhanced effects to the gaming, allowing for clearer picture quality and richer color details. The emergence of GPU Turbo will not only help the flagship devices but also the GPU performance of low-end and mid-range smartphones so that they can use technical means to avoid simply stacking hardware and still improve the user experience. Therefore, you can understand that GPU Turbo is a technology designed for the future. Its biggest significance lies in the fact that Android phones gradually get rid of hardware flaws.
