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. The company said that this tech increase graphics processing efficiency by up to 60% and SOC power consumption by 30%. After the Huawei Mate 10 series which started GPU Turbo beta testing on June 7, the company recruited GPU Turbo beta testers for Huawei Honor 10. About a month ago, the company released GPU Turbo Beta for the P20 series and now, we have confirmation that Huawei has released the stable update for the P20 Pro.
This update should give the phone a better gaming experience but it does not support all games. This update also comes with the July security patch. It is only 670MB in size thus it is not very heavy to download.
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.
