Xiaomi could be offering a new GPU Turbo app in the upcoming Mi 10 Pro Plus that offers more fine-grained control over several aspects of the GPU including adjusting anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering levels among others. The Mi 10 Pro Plus powered by the Snapdragon 865 Plus is an incremental upgrade to the Mi 10 Pro, but it is not clear whether these GPU features would make to the entire Mi 10 lineup.

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.
