The Huawei Honor Play has been also promoted as a game phone. But it will be fairer to say the Play is a relatively budget-friendly handset for gaming purposes, in which software plays the main role. As we said, it sports GPU Turbo. It is a revolutionary graphics processing acceleration technology. The official measured data show that GPU Turbo can improve graphics processing efficiency by up to 60% and SoC power consumption by 30%.
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 and the hardware, achieving a great improvement in the graphics processing efficiency of the entire system.
