Samsung and HTC Phones Delisted From Futuremark's 3D Graphics Test Chart


Benchmark software Futuremark has excluded Samsung Galaxy Note and HTC One models from its online 3DMark for Android performance chart, claiming that the phone makers have attempted to rig the results.

The HTC One, HTC One Mini, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 (Exynos 5 Octa), Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 (MSM8974), Samsung Galaxy Note III (Exynos 5 Octa) and Samsung Galaxy Note III (MSM8974) devices are currently labeled as "delisted" in Futuremark performance chart.

People rely on Futuremark benchmarks to produce unbiased results. And according to Futuremark, the company has "clear rules for hardware manufacturers and software developers that specify how a platform must interact with our benchmark software. A platform must run the benchmark without modification as if it were any other application."

Benchmark specific optimizations are not allowed and "when a device is suspected of breaking our rules it is delisted," Futuremark says.

Futuremark claims that HTC and Samsung have been performing modifications on their "delisted" gadgets. Such tricks could be boosting a device's GPU clock speed above its standard setting as soon as a benchmark application starts.

According to recent allegations made by AnandTech.com, a wide variety of Android devices cheat when running one or more standard benchmarks.

Samsung has denied the claim.
