Honor’s GPU Turbo technology has been a center of the topic ever since its announcement. The mobile giant promises major performance and battery life benefits for other companies if they use the GPU Turbo. Phones like Honor 10, Honor play, View 10, Honor 9 Lite, and Honor 7X are using the new GPU Turbo for more boost-up.
In the flagship market, Honor 10 is a compelling cost-effective challenger. In addition, the AI-powered dual cameras, stunning glass design, Honor 10 uses the powerful Kirin 970 processor. We find the Kirin 970 processor also in Huawei P20 Pro as well. We are expecting that with the combination of GPU Turbo and high-end chip, the Honor 10 will simply work as one of the highest performing smartphones.
WHAT IS GPU TURBO
The GPU Turbo technology by Honor optimizes the graphics pipeline. It removes the possible performance barriers and bottlenecks that stays between the phone’s graphics processing hardware and software. In the lower layer system, the GPU Turbo reconstructs the traditional graphics processing framework. But what does this actually mean? You are about to find out.
The graphics software can be split into two levels- high and low. The apps and the game engines are the highest-level software. APIs like OpenGL and Vulkan stays underneath these apps and game engines. OpenGL and Vulkan provide common graphics function to these applications. The low-level software and drivers lie under the API. They are the bits of codes that map the APIs to the actual graphics hardware inside your phone.
Honor has control over in the graphics framework for these bits. Honor has improved engineering in it which is the secret sauce under the wraps for now; If you look into the history of Android, you’ll see big performances leaps. From Java Runtime and tweaks to energy-aware scheduling, we’ve seen a lot of software changes in the past few years. We can ensure you now by saying that Honor has found the next big gain in the graphics department.
PERFORMANCE AND IMPROVEMENTS IN ENERGY
The technical details are superb and awesome, but you may ask how does this improve the user experience?
Honor says that there are some major performance, energy and temperature benefits if you switch to the GPU Turbo. Apparently, you can get up to 60 percent more performance than the old graphics framework, if you use the GPU Turbo. Do you know what this means? It means that you are getting extra performance for higher and more stable frame rates and image qualities that are potentially improved. You’ll have smoother and prettier 3D Game appearances even without HDR (High Dynamic Range) support.
Along with the performance gain, you’ll see there’s a 30 percent drop in energy consumption. It means that games will consume less of your battery while the games will run faster notably and this will let you play games for longer. Your smartphone will get cooler if the phone has lower power consumption benefits. This will ensure device longevity and it will save the phone from overheating. Less overheating also make sure the phone’s performance won’t have any lag.
