Hello Mi Fans,
Welcome to yet another thread from the device team. As you all know, of late, Redmi has introduced its K20 series in Indian Market. Redmi K20 Pro, which goes with the slogan The Alpha Flagship, is more than what the name suggests. It can be said that the launch of Redmi K20 Pro has stunned the Indian smartphone market with its quality specifications and aggressive pricing. As the name suggests, the device comes with all flagship components be it processor, camera, design, display, and others.

Today let's talk about one of the most important components of any chipset the, Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). Redmi K20 Pro comes with the flagship Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 855 chipsets based on 7nm architecture with GPU duties helmed by Qualcomm’s most powerful GPU yet, the Adreno 640. So let's talk about it more.

What is a GPU?

In simple words, the GPU is a specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display device. GPUs are used in embedded systems, mobile phones, personal computers, workstations, and game consoles.

The Ultimate powerful Adreno 640 GPU

The GPU is called the 'Snapdragon elite gaming experience' by Qualcomm itself. Qualcomm claims that the GPU holds the features meant to improve the gaming experience in Snapdragon chipset devices. The company recognizes the increasing popularity of mobile gaming, particularly in regions like India and China, but also due to the arrival of acclaimed titles like Fortnite and Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG mobile). Considering the large popularity of the gaming industry, Qualcomm is working closely with game engine developers as well as game studios to make sure popular games are optimized for Snapdragon devices. Moreover, Qualcomm and Unity are looking to ease the transition to physically-based rendering (PBR) on mobile titles, bringing a new level of realism to video game graphics.

The GPU is also very powerful to accommodate True HDR gaming making the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, the first chipset that allows true HDR gaming experience. The company also claims that it has worked on certain algorithms to reduce frame drops during gaming. It is also the first GPU to come with Vulkan 1.1 support. With the support of all these features playing high-end games in the device is a piece of cake. It can handle any graphics thrown at it without breaking a single drop of sweat. It is capable of playing PUBG mobile in its highest graphics support, the HDR graphics settings with Extreme Frames settings.

The improvement from the previous generation of GPU is drastic. The leap in the performance of the chipset as a whole is around 45%, which is the best ever for a single generation upgrade for 800 series processors. The GPU has a performance upgrade of about 20% from the previous generation. Even though they have emphasized more on gaming, they haven't ignored the power consumption efficiency. The Adreno 640 GPU has a significant increase of 30% in power efficiency compared to the previous generation GPU.

To sum up, the new Redmi K20 Pro is a true alpha flagship and a flagship killer. And trust me, you should believe the hype. The GPU and CPU performance is unmatched by any other device in this price range. The device is a definite flagship value for money for any user.

That's it for today friends…
See you soon in another thread.
