GPU Turbo is a coordinated graphics processing acceleration technology that breaks the boundaries between software and hardware. At the bottom of the system, the traditional graphics processing framework is reconstructed to achieve software and hardware coordination which makes the overall efficiency of GPU graphics operations greatly improved, while the image quality and performance are improved, the energy consumption is reduced, and the performance and energy consumption are broken. This technology can first greatly enhance the user experience in heavy game scenarios.

Specifically, it has four features: high performance, more power saving, high image quality and cooler play. It improves graphics processing efficiency by 60-percent, high-end mobile phones can be more durable, stable and full-frame running large games, mid-range mobile phones can completely surpass competing products, while SoC energy consumption is reduced by 30%. The game lasts longer and the game is smoother.

GPU Turbo technology achieves higher picture quality while achieving the highest quality of the game. Even if the game does not support HDR, a similar HDR image quality is achieved with GPU Turbo. In addition, it can also customize a variety of picture effects, such as nostalgic mode, sharpening mode, cartoon mode and so on. This technology is widely used in all kinds of games and scenarios without relying on upper-layer game applications and game engines through a common technical framework, without the need for customization by vendors such as games. The future can be applied to the optimization of visual effects of the entire scene, such as multimedia, AR, VR, and so on.

At the end of July, Honor will begin rolling out the GPU Turbo update to a handful of its current smartphones, starting with the one of our favourite phones of the year: the Honor 10.

What is GPU Turbo?

GPU Turbo is a hardware-software GPU acceleration technology. Essentially, it turbocharges your phone’s GPU performance, turning your mid-range smartphone into a gaming powerhouse, without needing to upgrade the physical hardware.

When the update lands it will see GPU performance increase by up to 60 per cent, while also seeing battery consumption drop by 30 per cent. Apparently phones with this update give you half an hour more game time than the iPhone X on the same charge. That’s pretty incredible when you consider the other advantages of GPU Turbo.

How will it impact my mobile gaming?

In addition to boosting speed and enabling higher frame rates than most other phones on the market, this Update will enhance visuals by enabling HDR (high dynamic range), which increases contrast and colour saturation.

In real life, that means if you’re playing a quick round of PUBG mobile, or still trying to unlock all the cars in Real Racing 3, you should expect smoother animations, much fewer frame skips and overall jittery-ness, higher resolution, and breathtaking colours.

That’s not all though. There’s more. In addition to higher frame rates, fantastic graphics, turbocharged GPU performance and lower battery consumption, Honor phones with the GPU Turbo update will also run cooler. Phones won’t overheat despite the GPU enhancement and much more demanding visual load.

As games become increasingly graphics-intensive, GPU Turbo is an absolute must to ensure your phone can keep up with even the most demanding titles available on the Play Store.

Who should care?

Everyone. If you’re constantly frustrated with how much battery is consumed when gaming or watching videos, notice stuttering animation, or have a phone that overheats easily, this update is for you. Who doesn’t want a phone that’s faster and lasts longer?

For gamers, this is your dream update. It means you don’t have to go out and buy one of those new-fangled dedicated “gaming phones”. Honor is boosting its pre-existing phones to make games fly.

When’s it coming?

Depending on which device you have will depend on when you get the update. Honor is rolling out the GPU Turbo software update over the air to a number of its handsets, including the Honor 10, which is due to get the software within the next few weeks.
