Last week the Ars Technica site made reference to the fact of the Samsung had deliberately increase the CPU and GPU speed in the presence of popular benchamarks like Antutu, Geekbench and Quadrant which result in 50% increases of the performance when the smartphone didn’t know what benchmarking application was running.
However Samsung already said that it didn’t influenced the results. In a statement to CNET, Samsung said that “the Galaxy Note 3 maximizes the CPU and GPU frequencies when executes function that require a significant performance.
“This wasn’t an attempt to exaggerate the benchmarking results. We continue commited to offer to our clients the best mobile experience in the market.”
However the Samsung don’t explain the reason why the Note 3 increases the CPU and GPU speed when checks that the popular benchmarking applications are running, but the Ars Technica found a file that has a list of several popular benchmarking applications and has instructions to make the smartphone increase the CPU up to 100% of its frequency when this applications are running.
This it’s not the first time that the company it’s a target for this kind of accusations, having already been accused of influence the Samsung Galaxy S4 results.
