Perception-aware power management for mobile games via dynamic resolution scaling
2015 (English)In: 2015 IEEE/ACM INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN (ICCAD), IEEE , 2015, 613-620 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Modern mobile devices provide ultra-high resolutions in their display panels. This imposes ever increasing workload on the GPU leading to high power consumption and shortened battery life. In this paper, we first show that resolution scaling leads to significant power savings. Second, we propose a perception-aware adaptive scheme that sets the resolution during game play. We exploit the fact that game players are often willing to trade quality for longer battery life. Our scheme uses decision theory, where the predicted user perception is combined with a novel asymmetric loss function that encodes users' alterations in their willingness to save power.
