Qualcomm Adreno Turbo could become official tomorrow as GPU Turbo competitor
In what could be a direct answer to the successful marketing campaigns that have surrounded GPU Turbo in China, Qualcomm has teased the unveiling of its own alternative via its official Weibo account. It still remains unclear what kind of claims Qualcomm will be making with the software but it wouldn’t be surprising to see the brand improve upon those of Huawei and Honor – GPU Turbo can allegedly boost gaming performance by up to 60%. Moreover, it’s not known if the company's technology will be limited to its flagship processors or if less powerful offerings from the Snapdragon 400 and 600 lines will also be compatible. Regardless of this, though, considering Qualcomm isn’t a smartphone manufacturer, it’ll remain to be seen how quickly devices will begin receiving the software upon launch.
Now, it’s worth pointing out that the possible launch of Adreno Turbo is simply speculation at the moment – the company’s teaser only states that something faster, smoother, cooler, and smarter is on its way – but the only other alternative would be a new SoC, something that would be a rather odd move for the American company considering both the relatively small market that exists at the moment for gaming smartphones and the fact that the brand has only teased its announcement in China.
