Your next Samsung phone could make gaming even faster with Android 13


Last updated: January 28th, 2022 at 15:23 UTC+02:00

A lot of the Exynos 2200’s promotional material was centred around its gaming prowess, primarily due to its Xclipse 920 GPU. While a good GPU is essential for a smooth gaming experience, a lacklustre CPU can easily cause bottlenecks. Android 13 could have a few tricks up its sleeve to help keep the CPU primed for gaming.

Android 13 could help games run faster with new CPU tweaks

Mishaal Rahaman, former editor-in-chief of XDA Developers, stumbled upon some interesting tidbits in now-hidden AOSP (Android Open Souce Project) code snippets. It mentioned, “Improve game loading time by boosting CPU via ADPF”. If a game is running, it will use a set of APIs to communicate its state to the CPU, which will then operate at a boosted frequency.

The CPU boost feature is expected to arrive with Android 13, but only to Pixel devices. Details about its availability on other smartphones are scarce, as it could require some SoC-specific fine-tuning. Exynos chipsets shouldn’t have much of a problem due to their architectural similarities with the Google Tensor chips.

We should learn more about the feature in the Android 13 developer preview. The program usually kicks off by the end of February, so we won’t have to wait for very long. However, we’ll have to wait until the One UI 5.0 beta to find out if it will make its way to Samsung smartphones.
