South Korean giant Samsung could be working on a GPU booster, according to a new patent filed in the European Union (EU) ahead of Samsung's UNPACKED event on February 20 in San Francisco where the company is expected to take the wraps off Samsung Galaxy S10 line.
As the filing name suggests, it's likely to be called Neuro Game Booster. According to reports, Samsung could be working on something similar to Huawei's GPU turbo technology. Although the application is currently under review, it lists goods and services as follows:
"Software for smartphones; Electronic game software for mobile phones; Electronic game software for handheld electronic devices; Computer programmes for playing games; Computer application software featuring games and gaming; Artificial intelligence software; Downloadable computer game software; Recorded computer game software."
Give that the trademark description mentions Artificial intelligence software, we can safely assume the integration of AI technology. This application was filed with the European Union Intellectual Property Office. Speculation has it that it could surface in other parts of the world pretty soon.
However, it doesn't refer to any existing AI integrations done by the company. Apart from the AI, it also covers Computer application software featuring games and gaming.
Huawei's GPU Turbo update claims to increase graphics performance and optimize gaming experience on Huawei and Honor-branded phones. It also boosts average frame rate to the fullest possible rate.
In realted news, Samsung released a new update for the Gear S3 and Gear Sport devices that it claims would enhance the wearables with Galaxy Watch functions. It also claims to update navigation, communication experience and partnership possibilities.
