It looks like GPU tuning software is coming to smartphones. Xiaomi and Qualcomm seem to have developed an app called Turbo game which will allow users to adjust GPU settings to optimize performance, image quality or frame rates, among others.
Neither company has made an official announcement yet, but Ice Universe shared some photos the Game Turbo application, which would be available on the upcoming Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro + smartphone.
Based on the images, it looks like the app will allow users to save custom settings, but there are also presets, including:
- Save energy
- High quality
If you dig into the custom settings, it looks like you’ll be able to adjust anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, and texture filtering.
According to Ice Universe, Game Turbot will be “a unique feature” when it debuts on Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi 10 Pro + smartphone. But I wouldn’t be surprised if Qualcomm worked with other phone makers to release similar GPU tuning software for other smartphones in the future.
