During the presentation in China, the brand Honor announced a new mobile technology GPU Turbo. Its essence is to enhance the graphics capabilities of smartphones with reduced power consumption. It is noteworthy that this function will receive not only future devices, but also already released models – with the next software update.
On mobile devices, developers must constantly maintain a balance between the level of graphics and consumed resources, because what is the point of playing with a beautiful picture that will defuse a smartphone in minutes? Moreover, the user interface also uses many graphical elements. To solve all these issues, the company introduced the GPU Turbo technology.
The option allows you to significantly improve the efficiency of graphics processing without significantly affecting the battery life of mobile devices. According to representatives of the company, performance when working with graphics increases by 60%, and energy consumption is reduced by 30%. It was possible to achieve such results due to low-level interacting software and hardware platform.
Richard Yu, head of Huawei Consumer Business Group, said that with GPU Turbo in mid-range smartphones, single-threaded performance can even exceed that in multi-threaded mode without using this technology. Moreover, this feature brings support for HDR and additional effects in games in which it is not provided by the developers.
New Honor smartphones will support GPU Turbo technology. In addition, Honor 10, View 10, 9 and Honor 7X will also receive this feature with updates.
