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.
