Foreign media said Huawei GPU Turbo over-marketing Kirin 970 running data is suspected of deception

Zhongxin Jingwei client September 6th Huawei's Kirin 980 chip just came out, foreign hardware evaluation website AnandTech recently issued two articles about Huawei, one of which pointed out that Huawei GPU Turbo technology is effective, but marketing Some are excessive; the other is that the Huawei Kirin 970 is suspected of being deceived.

The titles of the two articles are: "Huawei's GPU Turbo: Valid Technology with Overzealous Marketing" "Huawei & Honor's Recent Benchmarking Behaviour: A Cheating Headache".

GPU Turbo technology, as its name implies, Turbo means turbine. This technology uses Huawei’s consumer business CEO Yu Chengdong’s words to add a turbocharger technology similar to that of a mobile phone. When you are powered, you can instantly improve the performance of your phone and achieve the effect of flying in the sky.

Anandtech said in an article on GPU Turbo technology that the most interesting aspect of GPU Turbo technology is that it makes up for the shortcomings of the Unicorn processor GPU. After this patch, the daily game is immediately improved. A level, at least no longer stuck.

Anandtech also pointed out that after the actual measurement, GPU Turbo did this, but Anandtech believes that Huawei’s marketing is somewhat excessive, because in general, GPU Turbo technology is for device games, according to time slices. Learning how to control the optimal control current and voltage, for manufacturers, needs to be optimized for models and games, time costs and other costs are large.

In addition, in the article on Kirin 970, AnandTech believes that after the system performance priority mode is turned off, the measured glory and Huawei’s latest Kirin 970 models are found, when the operating system finds that it is running the software. The temperature control range of the mobile phone will be increased, and the power consumption control will be relaxed, so that the result of running the score is more beautiful.

It is worth noting that the system power is greatly increased in the running mode. The article takes GFXBench T-Rex Offscreen Power Efficiency as an example. The glory Play into the running mode gets 127.36 frame rate, while the glory Play without entering the running mode gets 66.54. The average power in the running mode is 8.57W, and the average power in the non-running mode is 4.39W.

The article believes that although the running scores are good, the system's effectiveness is declining in the running mode, and the high running points do not mean that users can get the same performance in real use. A deceptive act.

AnandTech said that Wang Chenglu, president of Huawei's consumer BG software engineering department, said that the running test of smart phones is very common. Other companies are doing such tests, and they have taken a very high score. Huawei Can't keep silent. Wang Chenglu once emphasized that Huawei is more inclined to the actual user experience and scenarios when conducting system tuning, and hopes that the smartphone industry can have test standards that are more responsive to user experience.
