Redmi Mobile announced, “a few advanced features that can improve the smoothness of mobile phones.”

The fluency of the Redmi mobile phone system depends not only on the software level, but also the hardware configuration of the mobile phone greatly restricts the overall performance of the mobile phone performance. The “Developer Options” can improve the fluency of the mobile phone to a certain extent by debugging the mobile phone hardware.

Specifically, there are three developer options that can improve hardware utilization: “force GPU rendering”, “force enable 4x MSAA”, and “deactivate HW overlay”.

1. Force GPU rendering

The GPU is much better and more efficient than the CPU in graphics processing, so the application interface that is forced to render through the GPU will be smoother, and the program will be better optimized when it runs. After forcing the GPU to render, as long as the button is turned on, MIUI will use the interface of the GPU rendering application uniformly, making full use of the GPU and reducing the burden on the CPU, so the mobile phone as a whole will become smoother.

2.mandatory to enable 4x MSAA

MSAA (Multi-Sampling Anti-Aliasing) is multi-sample anti-aliasing technology, 4x MSAA is 4 times anti-aliasing. More simply, it is to improve the image display.

When this function is turned on, it can effectively improve the quality of the picture, making the characters and items in the game softer and smoother, and improving the overall visual experience. The first picture below shows that the anti-aliasing effect is not turned on, and the second one is the anti-aliasing effect. Take the lower edge of the photo frame on the left wall and the lamp post as an example.

3. Disable the HW overlay

HW here means hardware acceleration. Overlay means using the CPU for auxiliary operations, instead of just using the GPU for all rendering work.

Because simply using the GPU for rendering is relatively more expensive, the default is to open the HW overlay, which can effectively avoid the high power consumption caused by hardware acceleration, and also improve the smoothness of the mobile phone, performance and power consumption. Double balance.

But if you have previously turned on “force GPU rendering”, you need to disable the HW overlay to take full advantage of the GPU. The only downside is that it may bring an increase in power consumption.
