Futuremark detects HTC One's cheating on benchmarks

The new HTC flagship appears to have been doing just a bit too well and especially in the benchmarks it has outdone all and this over the top performance led to a lot of suspicion. The 3DMark benchmark was created by Futuremark and the news flying about the phone cheating in benchmark scores has landed on their ears. So they have come to know that the new HTC One (M8) has the potential to cheat when it comes to benchmarks and due to the this, they have delisted the phone altogether.

Looks like HTC is going to end up with a pretty bad reputation of cheating because there were similar issues with the previous flagship as well. Even Samsung's flagship has faced something of this sort however those phones were brought back after a software update disabled the boosting. Futuremark reveals why the HTC flagship has dropped down to the bottom of the chart and the bottomline is that the creator of the benchmark wants to test the real world scenario rather than the ideal cases.

HTC on the other side had some clarifications on their part which didnt seem quite fair and according to them, this was only done to get the maximum potential out of their CPU and the GPU and to see what limits they have. They have named this as a feature which extracts the best possible performance and bumps up the clock speeds. As it appears, Futuremark is not buying any of these explanations because they need the phone compete on fair grounds with all other devices out there. Now that they have sent the message across, they are hoping that HTC wouldd disable this so called feature of speed boost.
