Huawei's GPU Turbo tech arrives on Honor 10, currently in beta

23 June 2018
Those interested in being part of this beta test can head to the Chinese company's Huawei Pollen Club official forum to sign up for the program.

So they will no longer throttle their cpu speeds ?

Vegetaholic, 25 Jun 2018Total nonsense 960 was weakest chipset from all major top chipse... moreI'd recommend watching a video on Andriod Authority about it. It was the best overall. He tested the Galaxy Note 5 against The Mate 9 and some other phones.

Bought the p20 pro against my usual choices of the latest and greatest SOC which this time round is beyond any doubt the 845 (i don't deal with crapple so don't give me that A core crap)

The 845 can render pretty much anything at peak speed and it's apparently pretty cool too, so i didn't have much hope for the Kirin, but with that being said it absolutely smoked my PSP tests, able to run tekken 6 at a full 60fps which is native, zelda on the gamecube at it's native 30fps, so the kirin isn't any slouch as it is.

So if this GPU boost? Not sure how that's going to work adds anything at all, then it'll probably put it in line with the 845 to a certain point, maybe not benchmarks but in real world tests like PSP and Gamecube emulators, i think it'll do very well.

Good to see them seeing an issue.

Muhamashi18, 25 Jun 2018The Kirin 960 was the best soc in its class when it was released... moreTotal nonsense 960 was weakest chipset from all major top chipsets. Apple A series was destroying Kirin 960 from few generations back like all of the Android chipsets, sd 821 exynos 8890, was much faster than 960 Kirin, the only Kirin chipset which can compete with last year's chipset 835 and exynos 8895 is Kirin 970, it obviously has no chance against exynos 9810 and 845 not even mentioning Apple A10 or higher, can't believe people comment not knowing anything about chipset like they know everythinh

Muhamashi18, 25 Jun 2018The Kirin 960 was the best soc in its class when it was released... moreWell that just helps my argument. My point us that Huawei can do whatever the hell they want, especially because they really are serious about their business.

Walter C. Dornez, 24 Jun 2018You say that, and I can guarantee they'll catch up within 2 year... moreThe Kirin 960 was the best soc in its class when it was released. It even beat Apple's chip in some multi-core tests. Huawei just wasn't interested in power this time. They wanted to do the NPU thing.

Hockeybro13, 24 Jun 2018Very confused as to how they more then doubled performance simpl... moreActually,they have hold a small media conference explaining the basic idea of this technology. As we know, the difference between two adjacent frames is likely to be very small. GPU turbo will enable the GPU to only render the different part of the adjacent frames, thereby achieving the result they claimed. As for how it recognizes the difference between two frames, they didn't say anything.

ProJames, 24 Jun 2018You do not get it. Just think about it; they advertise a 60% boo... moreI think having a new hardware is WAY BETTER to have increased performance than using software tweaks.

Undervolting? I don't know, just a guess.

Resolution tweak, downscale and boom higher fps.

Very confused as to how they more then doubled performance simply in the software, no details noted either and the link is all in Chinese. Not saying fake news but it's nearly impossible to do what I just read here. But who knows, maybe huawei has a breakthrough or they were just throttling their devices due to lack of optimization? Who knows, all I know is that this doesn't seem legit to me at all and I want more details as to how they did this

r33fd, 24 Jun 2018There is literally NO WAY you can increase both performance and ... moreI've been saying that since the first time they mentionned that ''GPU turbo'' ''Tech'' ''Nology''

There is literally NO WAY you can increase both performance and efficiency levels by that much without new hardware.

This is a straight lie !

ProJames, 24 Jun 2018You do not get it. Just think about it; they advertise a 60% boo... moreYou just missed T&C

Terms and conditions apply

--VM--, 24 Jun 2018Performance =cost You do not get it. Just think about it; they advertise a 60% boost in performance. Not only that, but also a 30% reduction in power consumption.

Now, that kind of magic is only possible with either some huge structural changes or an intentionally underperforming system. And those structural changes require a new architecture or a die shrink. For a 60% boost and 30% more efficient SoC, that requires both. And I don't think Huawei can make a die shrink OTA.

Vegetaholic, 24 Jun 2018So all the gpus before been throttle default by Huawei and now w... moreUse to own many flagship branded phone, starting last year using huawei. I believe in huawei even more than others.

If u never experienced them and stick to your favourite brand for the rest of your life, u will never know that they were really good. Owh yeah, my previous flagship phone are from Sony.

Thank g0d i switch to huawei, no regrets.

A +60% boost on graphics performance may sounds overpromising, since they only change and modify some system files in order to achieve the so-called boost. They should learn from Lenovo Z5's disaster before doing such trick.

ProJames, 23 Jun 2018Or better yer: they made it so that the GPU is running at full s... moreSo all the gpus before been throttle default by Huawei and now will be released at full potential with lower clock, sound nothing else as a brag for nothing, if they couldn't even let you use full power of the device at the beginning, very fishy stuff, in any matter don't beleive Huawei at all

23, 23 Jun 2018there will be no difference I guess, its just gimmick IMHO they ... moreWell maybe it will work but the effect will be like 5-10% speed increase.
In case of Scamsung they are really bloodsuckers i.e. wampires.

And no one even mentions obvious falls advertisement?
