Chinese Giant, Huawei has embarked beta testing of GPU Turbo tech on Honor 10. After revealing the new technology with its latest flagship, Honor Play, the company had announced that it would be launched on several other Huawei existing phones, and this is the continuation of that.
The company had also unveiled that they will share the tech to other Huawei affordable and flagship phones via a software update once tested. Those geeks who want to test the beta testing feature, must enroll themselves at Huawei Pollen Club official forum but there is a catch, only users from China can register themselves for beta testing.

For those, ignorant of what the feature does to your smartphone, GPU Turbo re-routes the device’s power to the GPU hoping to improve performance by up to 60 percent, something that will ultimately amplify the overall gaming experience–Honor previously claimed its mid-range devices could outperform certain flagship devices on bench-marking apps and websites courtesy to the software.
It is to be noted that the software specifically only works with conventional Android games, but it has confirmed an update that will support both AR and to be in the works.
