Will it be better than what Huawei and OPPO have to offer?
Xiaomi is serious in making a statement (and possibly stealing Samsung’s spotlight) on February 20 with the Mi 9. A few days before its launch in China, Xiaomi has practically revealed everything we need to know about the Mi 9. However, one feature does stand out, and it is Game Turbo.
Said to be Xiaomi’s response to Huawei’s GPU Turbo and OPPO’s Hyper Boost, Game Turbo aims to optimize gaming performance by “intelligently allocating resources for complicated scenes.”
In principle, Game Turbo is much closer to Huawei’s performance-enhancing solution since the focus of the tech is with games. However, Xiaomi takes things one step ahead by providing essential metrics like CPU and GPU usage rate and real-time FPS performance.
Other unique features of Game Turbo include being able to switch networks with one tap and being able to run the game while the screen is off—which is perfect for MMORPGs like Ragnarok where players would grind through the game to level up their characters.
What makes Game Turbo more interesting is the games it supports: while Huawei’s GPU Turbo and OPPO’s Hyper Boost primarily support PUBG Mobile, the former also supports Mobile Legends and Asphalt 9 while the latter supports Arena of Valor.
For Xiaomi’s Game Turbo, it supports a variety of titles that include Glory of the King, Stimulus Battlefield, All Forces Attack, Crash Bad 3, Wild Action, and Clash of Clans. From the said list, only Clash of Clans rings a bell, though we expect other popular titles to be supported by Game Turbo in future iterations.
Will it be better than what Huawei and OPPO’s solutions? We will know more come Feburary 20.
