BySophia Windsor 2019-05-28 1117

we were able to test the Turbo GPU mode on an Honor 10, equipped with the Kirin 970 processor.

Smoother games, but a hot phone

Once the update was installed on the Honor 10, we tried some particularly energy-intensive games, such as PUBG Mobile or Riptide GP. First observation: not everything is perfect. We average around 29 FPS, which is, let's face it, quite good. But the smartphone occasionally experiments with some lags.

More annoying, it heats up very quickly. After 5 to 6 minutes, the glass is hot and the use of a shell is only recommended. In short, no magic here, the Kirin 970 still has its limits.

On the other hand, there is clearly a better way to achieve autonomy. On an Honor 10 without Turbo GPUs, 30 minutes of PUBG Mobile dropped the device from 100% to 91%. After the update, the device finishes the first half hour at 96%. Software optimization is very successful here. The device has consumed very little despite the resources required by a network game.

Slight performance boost

In use, the Turbo GPU therefore provides better performance for the Honor 10, especially in terms of range. To check if the performance was really better, we subjected the device to a series of benchmarks before and after updating, to see if there was an evolution. Good news, the smartphone does better with the Turbo GPU. Bad news, we're a long way from a revolution.

Of course, benchmarks are only theoretical. Speaking of a 60% improvement, Honor is actually more general, and talks about how the smartphone optimizes CPU/GPU consumption. The device manages data better and therefore consumes less energy for the same or even more demanding task.

In other words, the Turbo GPU on the brand's devices is a welcome innovation, but it will not revolutionize mobile video gaming. We still welcome Honor and Huawei's decision to include all its current users, and not to reserve the mode for the latest smartphones.
