Samsung introduces Turbo Speed Technology for smartphone RAM performance optimization
posted by Luis D. / Jul 27, 2016, 4:33 AM
Following the new Galaxy J2 Pro's release, Samsung published an intriguing video explaining a technology implemented in its latest invention. Called Turbo Speed Technology (TST), this is a solution for improving critical smartphone performance metrics, such as app load times, multitasking fluidity, and RAM memory utilization efficiency by means of software optimization.
Rather than throw in more processor and memory resources at the problem, Samsung tightened up particular areas with direct impact on the typical daily smartphone usage. First off, its engineers reduced the size and memory footprint of the bundled core apps for telephony, messaging, productivity, and communications. They also allocated them to a dedicated home screen and optimized the RAM management engine to intelligently free up memory on the operating system, kernel, and hardware levels.
The alleged result is that the Galaxy J2 Pro, which comes with 2GB of RAM memory, is capable of loading applications up to 40% faster than a smartphone with double the memory capacity. In a way, the new J-series handset is potentially faster than Samsung's flagship S-series devices! Speaking of which, we assume Samsung will introduce Turbo Speed Technology across its better-known devices, unless there are technological particulars preventing them from doing so.

It should've came with a 4GB Ram, in first place. No need for tweaks. There are apps in Playstore which does the same.

Tweaks from the OEM is better than using some half assed app with no system privillege. FYI more ram doesn't equal faster loading times for apps.

In other words, to buy a smartphone, root and flash a custom ROM/kernel in order to obtain this TST feature, is somehow more convinient (for you), than to just buy a smartphone with the TST functionality already pre-installed!? @Amroze

I can see One Plus making notes. On a serious note, does anyone know if its a hardware requirement or can be updated to previous phones ?

I am a big fan of Samsung note series but still with a lot of sarcasm I say finally they have come with some kind of gimmick just before the note 7 launch....now the funny guy at their unpacked event will go on and on about this feature!

Up to 40% speed improvement is about as much as a new SoC generation usually brings. So I'd say, if they can live up to the claim, it's much more than a gimmick. Less power needed for the same performance, also means longer battery life for the same performance.

Frankly, it sounds somewhat like what Apple demoed on stage sometime earlier for Mac OS X; memory compression. Will have to see a comparison to believe the claims of it performing 40% faster than with double the RAM...
