For the Mi 10 Pro +, Xiaomi and Qualcomm would be working on a suite of features specific to a “Game Turbo” mode. Intended to boost the graphics performance of the device, these features would allow you to choose between different profiles, while in some cases leaving it to the user to adjust the visual quality of the games as they see fit … a bit like on a PC .
If the technologies allowing to manually or automatically boost the performance of the graphics part of our smartphones have been around for a long time, Xiaomi seems to have plans to go much further in the concept. In partnership with Qualcomm, the Chinese manufacturer would seek to add to its future Mi 10 Pro Plus a whole suite of features relating to a turbo mode for its graphics.
These features would allow the user to choose between different performance profiles, but that’s not all: they could above all make it possible to adjust, from a dedicated interface, certain graphics parameters such as the fineness of the aliasing processing (for the attenuation of the aliasing) or even anisotropic filtering (dedicated to the fineness of textures).
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro directly inspired by the PC world?
This is in any case what reveals the leaker Ice Universe on Twitter. His tweet indeed mentions a ” unique feature “Baptized” Game Turbo ”and developed through a partnership between Qualcomm and Xiaomi. A first which would effectively leave the user free to adjust several graphics parameters. The parameters of this Game Turbo mode will be visibly accessible directly from a dedicated interface, similar to the Nvidia control panel on a PC, for example.

To access texture filtering and anti-aliasing selection, however, you would have to opt upstream for the “custom” mode. A “high quality” mode is also available. It will certainly have a negative impact on the autonomy of the smartphone, but should in return automatically boost the visual quality without further user intervention.
On the other hand, it is not known whether the settings applied from the Xiaomi tool will apply directly to all the games launched on the smartphone, or if the developers will have to take steps beforehand to make their games compatible with this feature. As a reminder, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro Plus would be equipped with a Snapdragon 865 or a Snapdragon 865 Plus.
