BET­TER PER­FOR­MANCE AND GAM­ING ON YOUR AN­DROID DE­VICE

HWM (Singapore) - - LEARN -

An­droid L will in­clude sup­port for 64-bit pro­ces­sors and will also be the first ver­sion of An­droid to run ex­clu­sively on ART, the An­droid run­time suc­ces­sor to Dalvik that was in­tro­duced with KitKat. This should mean that fu­ture apps will have bet­ter over­all per­for­mance, bet­ter mem­ory man­age­ment, and lower power draw, re­sult­ing in more bat­tery life. An­droid L also comes with a new “Ex­ten­sion Pack” that of­fers what Google claims are “PC gam­ing” ca­pa­bil­i­ties on high-end smart­phones and tablets. It does this by fa­cil­i­tat­ing higher-fi­delity graph­ics tech­niques such as tes­sel­la­tion and ge­om­e­try shad­ing in An­droid games. This should bet­ter cap­ture the po­ten­tial of pow­er­ful chips like NVIDIA’s Te­gra K1.
