Qualcomm is perhaps the most popular chipset manufacturer for mobile devices today. It is not the only one but it has proven its performance whether on smartphones, tablets or laptops. The Snapdragon line is respected. It also manufactures GPUs which are often touted as partners of Snapdragon processors. The latest information we have is that Qualcomm and Xiaomi are teaming up to offer a GPU tuning feature that will be used for the Mi 10 Pro+. This so-called Game Turbo setting is said to make smartphones more powerful than ever, especially if we are talking about mobile games.
The games being developed these days are getting more and more demanding, so the requirements are also changing. Some of the most popular and powerful games like Call of Duty, PUBG, and fortnite require high settings. They often push the GPU to its limits.
There are activity-ready gaming phones like the ASUS ROG Phone 3 or the Lenovo Legion Gaming Phone. These devices come with specially tuned performance parameters to be able to meet the demands of the games. For ordinary phones with high specifications, they can always be optimized. Xiaomi and Qualcomm want to help by introducing an improved version of Game Turbo.
Game Turbo is Xiaomi’s game tuning feature. With the Mi 10 Pro+, both are thought to be work together to make it more powerful. It is a software that allows to make appropriate modifications to the code.
There’s no confirmation from either company, but the Chinese leakster ice universe shared the information: “Xiaomi Mi10 Pro+ has a unique feature: Game Turbo, a mode developed by the GPU team of Xiaomi and Qualcomm, which is unprecedented. You can use it to adjust GPU settings and modes, including GPU frequency adjustment, etc.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro+ has yet to be unveiled. It will be an upgraded version of the Mi 10 Pro which will be powered by the new Snapdragon 865 Plus. With Game Turbo, a device owner can select preset profiles based on their usage and preferences for graphics quality, battery life, and performance. Manual setting of parameters can also be performed.
Like all unconfirmed news, we take things with a grain of salt. It certainly sounds like an exciting change that will benefit OEMs and possibly hardcore mobile gamers. We’ll see when the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro+ is announced.
