MIUI 9, the latest version of the Android modification made by Xiaomi, has an interesting novelty: Game Speed Booster. A way that let the games work better dedicating them more resources. MIUI 9 already improved phone performance in general, but this mode of «high performance»Is dedicated especially to video games.
The way Game Speed Booster has to improve game performance is allocate all possible resources to them. In addition to clearing the cache, it restricts applications from being updated in the background. It also gives priority to the game in the connection, and can even prevent us from changing wireless networks while we play.
And, as we can read in foneArena, all this works. The games with this mode are more fluid, they work better compared to usual. Of course, they emphasize that the phone heats up more than usual too. And we imagine that too it will lead to higher battery consumption, having the processor demanding more from the whole.
In addition, this mode not only improves performance. Like other manufacturers, the MIUI game mode allows keep screen brightness at a certain level, turn off the buttons navigation, answer calls hands-free and activate the do not disturb mode. We can configure it to do what we want when we play.
How to activate Game Speed Booster in MIUI 9
- We go to the MIUI security application
- We look for the section «Gaming Speed Boost«, Right in the middle
- A screen will appear showing us the advantages of the section
- We slide to the right and press Start
- A new icon will be placed on the desktop, blue with a remote
It should be remembered that we can add games to be activate automatically Every time we play If not, we can activate it by hand every time we want to play. We can also use this application to customize what we want the mode to do. We just have to select the settings column, right next to the games column.
At the moment this is only found in the MIUI 9 global beta, but hopefully it will reach the whole world over the next few weeks.
