If Huawei has GPU Turbo, OPPO now has Hyper Boost. But unlike Huawei’s gaming-focused technology, Hyper Boost aims to accelerate the overall performance of a smartphone when running heavy-load applications.
The “full-scenario, system-level performance-boost engine,” as OPPO calls it, zeroes in on three categories:
- System. OPPO reveals it has worked closely with Qualcomm and MediaTek to optimize resource allocation. It claims the system engine offers more than 50 solutions “for optimizing the utilization of the underlying hardware resources against 20-plus software scenarios and 20-plus software behaviors.” It should help shorten app-loading time by up to 31.91 percent.
- Gaming. OPPO has collaborated with Tencent and Netease and game engines like Unreal, Unity, and Cocos to implement the optimization of the top 100 mobile games through component acceleration. As of today, 11 of the world’s most popular mobile games, including Honor of Kings and PUBG Mobile, will get an instant performance boost by reducing overall network latency. We have yet to receive the complete list of supported games, though.
- Application. Platform-level apps like WeChat, Mobile Taobao, and Mobile QQ are among the first to be targeted for optimization. OPPO claims Hyper Boost should provide “dramatic acceleration in 39 common usage scenarios for users of these heavily used apps.”
The OPPO R17 and R17 Pro will get the update first. Unfortunately, those two devices are only available in China. But don’t worry, we’re sure Hyper Boost will be rolled out to more smartphones in the near future. We’ll be in China for an OPPO event more than a week from now, and we’re planning to get more info about the technology there.
