Honor's performance-enhancing GPU Turbo update will come to various devices
Yesterday, Huawei announced its new Honor Play smartphone that makes use of a new technology it’s calling GPU Turbo in a bid to compete with the likes of the Razer Phone and Asus ROG Phone, despite their flagship specs. Now, though, in a bid to attract even more customers, the company has confirmed that GPU Turbo will be rolling out to other Honor devices too.

The new software, which is claimed to enhance the gaming experience on Honor smartphones, essentially just diverts power to the GPU whenever necessary in a bid to guarantee the best gaming experience. In fact, Honor is so confident in the feature that it claims that a mid-range Honor device could beat certain flagship phones on benchmarking sites. However, this is not all, as the Huawei sub-brand is planning a future update that will introduce support for both AR and VR gaming experiences to the Honor Play.

When it comes to its more international customers, Honor is also aiming to please and has confirmed that the new GPU Turbo software, as well as future support for AR and VR, will be rolling out to the Honor 10, Honor View 10, Honor 9 Lite, and Honor 7X, although the popular brand is yet to specify a release schedule.

On a side note, considering most Huawei smartphones feature the same processor and GPU setup as Honor’s devices, it's possible that the technology could make its way to its devices in the future, albeit with a different branding.

I think it's coming with Android P/EMUI 9.0 update but it may come in the past.

Since almost every new SoC supports Vulkan graphics nowadays. Then instead of using OpenGL internally, the switch to Vulkan would give a significant boost over OpenGL.
