Apple SVP Phil Schiller Points to Samsung's Benchmark 'Shenanigans'

Posted by · 15003 views · Translate

Apple SVP Phil Schiller has tweeted a link to a report from ArsTechnica which reveals that Samsung has been artificially inflating its benchmark scores for the Galaxy Note 3.

shenanigans ...

ArsTechnica noticed that strangely the Galaxy Note 3 scored much better in its benchmarks then the similarly specced LG G2, and launched an investigation into the matter.

A quick comparison of its scores to the similarly specced LG G2 makes it clear that something fishy is going on, because Samsung's 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 blows the doors off LG's 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800. What makes one Snapdragon so different from the other? After a good bit of sleuthing, we can confidently say that Samsung appears to be artificially boosting the US Note 3's benchmark scores with a special, high-power CPU mode that kicks in when the device runs a large number of popular benchmarking apps.

By changing the name of the benchmark utility, ArsTechnica found that booster was adding 20% to the Galaxy Note 3's score.
