Samsung presents GameDriver to convert its ‘flagship’ into mobile phones to play

Samsung continues to trust the world of video games, and now presents GameDriver to improve the ‘gaming’ performance of its Galaxy phones.

They have not finished taking off the mobile on the Android platform, and honestly it is not something that surprises me because I have been commenting on for some time about its (no) need, analyzing a little that “novel” concept defended to a greater extent by Chinese firms and its brands .

In a way, a mobile it is nothing other than a high-end with garish design and colored lights, so it was logical that some brand broke the paradigm turning their on mobile to play, simply equipping them with accessories and specific software for the environment .

We talk how not to Samsung, always given to putting her paw in each niche of the market but has been cautious in this regard, keeping her mobile phones more performance without denomination or brothers , but signing important agreements with Epic Games or Microsoft in addition to incorporate a and software designed to increase performance and add basic options for the most gamers in the place.

Samsung continues to bet on mobile gaming, and launches GameDriver to improve performance.

A few weeks ago, in fact, Galaxy Store was presented redesigned betting on the video game, and following a timid presentation of our colleagues from xda-developers, we can teach you the new GameDriver app that Samsung has created to improve performance of their mobiles in environments .

It is completely free software, compatible with most Samsung Galaxy devices and that arrives to confirm games as a fundamental part of the experience of a Samsung mobile, offering updates for the terminal’s GPU and with them improvements focused on graphics performance:

GPU driver optimization and the best of driver updates are a key area to take full advantage of hardware capabilities, and maintain optimized performance of a graphics processor.

Apparently, this development stems from a close collaboration with Google itself and the industry’s leading GPU vendors, including ARM and Qualcomm, in addition to multiple expert partners in the world of videogames such as ChuckleFish, Crytek and Unity.

Thus, Samsung mobiles will have from now on about updated and specifically optimized drivers to get the most out of the GPU for the best experience in Titles like Call of Duty: Mobile, Black Desert, and Fortnite, some of them with specific collaboration agreements with Samsung.

It seems that they are correct in Samsung, which already in the GameDev of 2016 recognized smartphones as the largest video game platform in the world, stating that they would focus many of their resources on making the most of this symbiosis between video games and mobiles, without going crazy as we have seen when launching devices with stridencies and LEDs.

Samsung is not the only brand that is now betting on similar solutions, since we have seen others like Xiaomi or OPPO incorporate to their mobiles, a practice that will surely continue to spread now that Game Pass Ultimate or Stadia are here to stay.
