MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition features
The MIUI 12.5 Enhanced Edition focuses on fluency and lower power consumption. The main functions include liquid storage, atomic memory, focus computation, and smart balance.
For example, the intelligent computing power scheduling mechanism improves the fluency of all models. It improves the ultra-fine memory management mechanism as well as the comprehensive improvement of application residency. This feature also improves the sensitive and efficient file storage mechanism, the system anti-aging ability, and the intelligence of the flagship hardware.
Specifically, focus computing smoothly and comprehensively accelerates 51 core scenes, prioritizes the most obvious processes perceived by the current user according to the scenes, and suppresses unimportant applications in the background. According to the actual measurement of multiple models, the CPU usage rate drops by an average of 15%. This in turn saves the power consumption by an average of 8%.
Atomic memory is a kind of ultra-fine memory management that splits application memory. It also gives priority to ending unimportant tasks and refines/compresses memory usage. Taking Xiaomi Mi 10 Extreme Commemorative Edition as an example, the background resident capacity increases by 64%.
Liquid storage can monitor the degree of fragmentation with high sensitivity. Furthermore, the efficiency of defragmentation can increase by 60%. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro laboratory simulation test shows that the reading and writing attenuation is less than 5% after 36 months of use.
