Samsung denies accusations of tweaking the Galaxy S4




The Korean company Samsung came up with their latest flagship Galaxy S4 yesterday in the Techmedien. Brian Klug of Anandtech had found out that the graphics unit of the Samsung Galaxy S4 when running various benchmarks had a higher clock frequency.

IMG_7532 Here votes were then quickly raised that Samsung may know if a benchmark app was started and by the short-term higher clock come out a better result at the popular benchmark tests.

Thus, the short-term overclocking of 480 MHz to 530 MHz provides for more power and more points. Samsung now has very recently issued a statement and denied intentionally favors of benchmark apps. Under normal circumstances, the GPU allow a maximum of 533 MHz, but is reduced by default to 480 MHz for certain games, since the 533 MHz can otherwise cause congestion at this full-screen apps.

Under normal circumstances, the said 533 MHz but are delivered, such as the S browser, the gallery, the camera, the video player, or even in some benchmarks. The different clock rates are intended to give users the best possible experience and not to look better in some benchmarks – so the statement from Samsung.
