A new blueprint for the future of panoramic digital entertainment! Let more people enjoy professional-level gaming experience. From product optimization to industry promotion, Snapdragon is fully involved in e-sports game features. As an example, Snapdragon, which has become synonymous with the top Android mobile experience, has formed a "dominant position" in the field of e-sports and e-sports. , led by a variety of terminal products of the Snapdragon 8 series flagship mobile platform, has become the official designated machine for major professional e-sports events, professional players and ordinary players can get an excellent and superior experience on these products; more than that, In order to allow players to operate smoothly and win, Qualcomm has also carried out in-depth tuning with game studios and terminal manufacturers. At present, the ultra-smooth gaming experience, highest HDR quality and end-game-level features of Snapdragon Elite Gaming have not only been implemented in some of the most popular titles, but also gradually applied to new titles. For example: In order to better support the experience of the next-generation strategy mobile game "Return to Empire" on smartphones supported by the Snapdragon mobile platform, Qualcomm and Tianmei Studio have carried out a series of optimizations, including the optimization of hero skeletal animation sampling , graphics rendering optimization, shading language instruction-level debugging, and bandwidth optimization. In terms of rendering method, the Flex Render feature of Adreno GPU on the Snapdragon mobile platform can support both TBDR (Tile-Base-Deferred-Rendering) and DR (direct-rendering) rendering architectures, so as to achieve the optimal rendering method for game screen selection. Faster rendering and less power consumption. In addition, Qualcomm and Tianmei Studio have also jointly optimized the fragment culling in the game screen. Fragments are the basic units used to update pixels and contain data such as color depth textures. If the fragment is depth culled before the fragment is shaded, it means that useless updates to pixels can be saved, which greatly reduces the GPU load. Qualcomm and Timmy have jointly optimized the rendering order to achieve the best culling effect for Adreno LRZ (Low Resolution Z). The LRZ technology of Adreno GPU can quickly eliminate unnecessary fragment calculations, thereby making depth sorting unnecessary during rendering, reducing the sorting load on the CPU side, and greatly improving the rendering performance on the GPU side. In terms of shading language, the best performance is achieved by taking full advantage of the hardware feature of Adreno GPU, which processes 16-bit floating-point numbers twice as fast as 32-bit floating-point numbers. In terms of bandwidth, the two sides performed batch processing to maximize the loading speed of textures on the Adreno GPU. The two parties also added GPU hardware-level optimization for specific application scenarios. The HDR Fast Blend feature supported by Adreno GPU has been carefully optimized at the hardware level for specific scenes, such as combat special effects, so that the performance of hybrid GPU rendering in HDR format can be improved by up to 2 times. Under the blessing of Snapdragon Elite Gaming, "Return to the Empire" has performed well on the Snapdragon 8, 7, and 6 series platforms, allowing players to feel the immersive and vivid battlefield. In fact, the achievements of the Snapdragon mobile platform not only improve the experience of mobile games, but also promote the development of the e-sports industry. This year, Qualcomm teamed up with ESL Gaming to create a global mobile game event, the Snapdragon E-sports Pioneer Competition.
