Last month Huawei’s subsidiary ‘Honor’ launched a gaming phone ‘Honor Play’ and alongside that phone, the company also unveiled a new technology called ‘GPU Turbo‘. In addition to ‘GPU Turbo‘, Today Honor unveiled Note 10 geared with two new technologies. What are these two new technologies? and how they work? let’s explore them below.
Before the official unveiling of Note 10, the company has overhyped the device’s upcoming features and technologies which is a result of its 2 year’s hiatus on the Note-series.
These two new technology includes ‘Dual Turbo’ combination of GPU Turbo + CPU Turbo and a liquid cooling tech called ‘The NINE’.
Dual Turbo (GPU Turbo+CPU Turbo):
is a combined work of GPU+CPU process, as for the current recipient of these two technology Honor Note 10 feature a Physical ‘Turbo Button’ that could be found on the lower right corner of the phone, instantiates the process of both techs in working.
Apart from GPU Turbo GPU Turbo improves the graphics processing efficiency of smartphones by 60%, and the power consumption has also been reduced by 30%. This time added CPU Turbo, forming a dual Turbo configuration, used for games, photos, information display and more. For gamers, CPU Turbo is not only an added feature but it is more than that.
While playing any game, with a single click of the ‘Turbo Button’ users can turn on the CPU Turbo acceleration, the background intelligently cleans up the redundant process and stimulates the CPU’s limit performance.
Thanks to THE NINE liquid cooling technology, the CPU can run stably at high frequencies, even in the face of a large number of calculations and re-modeling tasks caused by game screen switching, the system can now be handled more easily and games could perform much smoother and faster.
Thanks to the deep cooperation between Huawei and Games manufacturers, the hardware is loaded with AI (NPU) that can intelligently optimize games and adjust CPU and GPU load according to games requirements which is absolutely amazing.
While on ‘Turbo Mode’ you can turn on the game depth non-disturbing function, you can block the call and ensure that the game is not disturbed. Even if you play games under the full screen, you can easily take screenshots, record screens providing an excellent device experience.
Dual Turbo provides a consistently high frame rate gaming experience, clear and stable images, and a network acceleration engine, which is smooth and unbroken.
‘The Nine’ Liquid Cooling:
Honor Note 10 uses a PC-level liquid cooling system while playing games, which prevents the drop in mobile GPU-acceleration and grows the performance rate of the mobile phone.
The cooling system is 7.65mm thick and uses the same D5 liquid cooling tube as the MacBook Air liquid cooling tube diameter (5mm), length 113mm with the heat dissipation power of 5W.
This tube uses 9-layer stereo cooling that provides heat dissipation efficiency increased by 41%, and the maximum temperature of the CPU can be reduced by 10°C. The CPU turbo (Dual Turbo) also depends on the NINE liquid cooling technology to achieve the balance of high performance and device’s temperature maintenance. Thanks to ‘THE NINE’ technology, the CPU can stably run at high frequencies, making the performance even better.
These two technologies could be extremely helpful to improve the overall performance of the device and could also be added in upcoming Huawei and Honor smartphones just like GPU Turbo update and other hardware enhancements.
Huawei smart car tech can measure water accumulation to avoid incidents
On the 23rd of July 2021, Huawei released a new patent for determining the depth of inert water, which was applied by the company on the 3rd of March this year. This new patent will be proved another significant step towards the company’s strategy of making more advanced smart vehicles.
This new patent is entitled the “method and device for determining the depth of inert water” has the publication number CN113168535A. It is designed to identify the depth of the water accumulation area to avoid any possible mishappening.
Although, the automotive industry has developed many advanced technologies, which brings extra convivence for the users. But, when it comes to crossing through water accumulated areas, only the driver’s knowledge is considered to be safe.
To reduce any vulnerability in the water accumulated area, Huawei introduced this new technology. As per the patent description, this method will follow the below-mentioned procedure to gain the desired result-
- First, capture the images of the present inert water road
- Then, analyzes the image to extract valuable information
- Now, obtain the spatial location of the edge of the inert water
- Afterward, obtain the road slope angle
- Thereafter, determines the inert water and road position corresponding to the maximum water depth of the area using the recommended algorithms
Hence, the spatial location, road slope angle, and position, maximum water depth, and maximum inert water depth are determined.
The Huawei inert water patent method will specifically provide help for the autonomous driving system and contributes to more enhanced in-vehicle capabilities. Furthermore, it’ll cover the internet of vehicles that includes-
- V2X: vehicle outreach
- LTE-V: long-term evolution of vehicle communication technology
- V2V: Vehicle-Vehicle
Huawei autonomous driving control solution with identified signals
Last January, Huawei applied for a new patent for a driving controlling method in smart cars, devices, and related equipment, which was published on July 23 with announcement number CN113160590A in China.
For a long time, Huawei is securing its new ideas, methods, and technologies mainly related to smart cars in the form of patents. The Chinese tech giant’s new aim is to become a leading technology supplier in the automobile industry.
According to the patent document, this method of driving controlling method of the smart car according to the detected signal recognition to improve the safety.
Let’s take a look over the patent method for controlling driving of the smart car:
- When the controller first recognizes the signal display device and calculates the target value of the acquisition parameter of the image acquisition device in the smart car.
- The acquisition parameter of the image acquisition device is used to indicate the acquisition period and warm light to collect the image the number of times, exposure duration, and interval duration.
- After that, it sends an instruction to the image acquisition device and adjusts the acquisition parameters.
- According to the image acquisition device to obtain the image identification signal identification, and control the smart car to drive according to the identified signal identification.
In this way, the probability that the signal identification in the image collected by the image acquisition device is in the complete state is increased.
Also, the probability that the result recognized by the controller according to the image is consistent with the new result of the actual signal identification table. As a result, it improves the identification of smart car control accuracy and safety.
