[GSMArena] GPU Driver updates coming to several Google and Samsung phones

Source: https://www.gsmarena.com/play_store_...news-42216.php

Quote:
Back in December during the Snapdragon Summit, Qualcomm announced its updateable GPU drivers for its Snapdragon 765 and 865 platforms. Today, Google introduced its new Android GPU Inspector tool which is a new graphics profiling tool for smartphone GPUs that allows developers to tweak and better optimize their games' performance and push those new gains to consumers straight through OTA updates on the Play Store.

According to Qualcomm, the new optimizations can decrease GPU strain by as much as 40% while providing faster frame rates and improved battery life on supported devices. Google and Qualcomm are already collaborating with multiple game studios including Gameloft and Blizzard Entertainment with the first set of GPU driver updates expected to arrive later this year.
Excited to see what developers will be able to create with these new tools. Crytek also just announced their Cryengine beta on Android.

I wonder, did they ever bother with releasing GPU drivers for any of their previous phones, or were they using just the initial drivers in the Linux kernel?

Like android was not enough of a sh * t show already, Imagine all the problems separating the driver from the firmware/os will create.

Where can I get me a DDU.apk?

This seems pretty odd to me at first glance. Maybe useful for OEM's to advertise an advantage in certain optimizations for games though.

Need to keep in mind that Android and Chrome OS are being streamlined with discussions of an eventual merge down the road. In that light this move would make more sense.

but chromeOS is trash, and so are chromebooks.

hell, more times than not, your chromebook is just last year's tablet board shoehorned into a laptop shell.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.
