OPPO Hyper Boost similar to Huawei’s GPU Turbo announced in China


Didn’t you hear about Huawei’s GPU Turbo technology? It’s a software accelerator for smartphones that improves gameplay and power conservation. Well, OPPO now has a similar implementation of its own. The company has just announced Hyper Boost, a software-level system optimization technology that improves not only gameplay but overall performance and power conservation in smartphones. OPPO’s in-house rival to GPU Turbo works by creating a ‘two-way dialogue’ between apps and system resources ultimately resulting in better performance.
