by Michele Ingelido 0

After debuting on the latest Huawei flagships, the new GPU Turbo technology is making its way even to older flagships released by Huawei. Today (August 13), the company has officially started the beta testing of GPU Turbo for the Huawei P10 series and for the Huawei Mate 9 series, excluding the Lite variants of each line-up. It is a closed beta testing phase, so the firmware will be available only for a limited amount of users (200 users with the log version and 2000 users without log version, according to the official Huawei Club forum).
