Huawei is deploying the GPU Turbo technology — which is a gaming performance upgrade — to its major smartphones starting from August 2018. Huawei had previously announced this GPU Turbo Technology for its sub-brand Honor earlier in the month of June. But sadly, this gaming performance upgrade from Huawei is not going to hit the United States as per stated by a Huawei representative.
Here is the list of Huawei smartphones which are likely to get the GPU Turbo update:
|Device||Regions||GPU Turbo Release date|
|Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, Mate RS||Europe, Russia, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa||August 2018|
|Huawei P20 and P20 Pro||Europe, Russia, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa||August 2018|
|Huawei Mate 10 Lite||In all markets||September 2018|
|Huawei Nova 2i||In all markets||September 2018|
|Huawei P Smart||In all markets||September 2018|
|Huawei P20 Lite||Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa||September 2018|
|Huawei Y9 2018||In all markets||September 2018|
|Huawei Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro||In all markets||November 2018|
|Huawei P10 and P10 Plus||In all markets||November 2018|
This upgrade is said to improve performance while using graphically intensive games as well as applications. Huawei stated that the GPU Turbo will initially support popular shooter PUBG Mobile and MOBA Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, while more of the titles are yet to be announced by the company in the days to come.
Likewise, it will also optimize the system resource management in order to improve graphics processing efficiency of the handsets by up to 60 percent as well as reduce the System on the Chip (SoC) power consumption by 30 percent. Thus, a smooth gaming performance can be expected via this upgrade in the aforementioned Huawei smartphones but we will have to wait until August when the upgrades will start appearing in order to witness that.
