Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro+ touted to offer PC-like fine-grained GPU customization via GPU Turbo, but latest MIUI 12 builds apparently show no such feature
Xiaomi's upcoming Mi 10 Pro Plus smartphone could use a dedicated Game Turbo mode to fine tune the GPU settings. Xiaomi has had Game Turbo for quite some time, but the company is apparently collaborating with Qualcomm for an even more powerful version of the software.
Well-known leaker Ice Universe managed to discover screenshots pertaining to the new Game Turbo mode and found that it allows several customization opti0ons. These including presets for Save Power, Balanced, High Quality, and Custom GPU settings. Going into Custom, one finds options to adjust Anti-aliasing up to 4x, Anisotropic filtering up to 16x, and Texture filtering between High Speed, Balanced, and High quality modes. While Ice Universe has mostly been spot on when it comes to leaks, it may be noted that this feature is apparently not seen in the latest MIUI 12 beta builds, according to XDA Developers (via forum member kacskrz).
We do not yet know whether Xiaomi will be rolling out this updated Game Mode to the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro as well. The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro+ has been spotted in quite a few leaks lately with the latest leak indicating a record-breaking AnTuTu score. The Mi 10 Pro+ is an upgraded version of the Mi 10 Pro and is touted to feature a Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC along with a 120 Hz display and a 108 MP primary camera.
It is also not clear whether accessing fine-grained GPU settings is something Qualcomm would be offering to all Snapdragon 865/865+ phones. The chip maker did indicate during the Snapdragon 865 launch last year that it will be providing updateable GPU drivers via the Play Store. So far, only Xiaomi offers such an app, but that is currently restricted to the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, and the Redmi K30 Pro in China.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro Plus is expected to launch sometime in August.
Super Leak：Xiaomi Mi10 Pro+ has a unique feature: Game Turbo, a mode developed by Xiaomi and Qualcomm's GPU team, which is unprecedented. You can use it to adjust GPU parameters and modes, including GPU frequency adjustment and so on. pic.twitter.com/Tu609T7Dy9— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) July 30, 2020
