UL Benchmarks sparker Huawei-enheder fra sin database over snyd

UL Benchmarks de-listed several popular Huawei devices from its database over proof of cheating in its benchmarks. Over the month, it was found that several of Huawei's devices, such as P20 Pro, Nova 3, and Play; overclocked their SoCs while ignoring all power and thermal limits, to achieve high benchmark scores, when it detected that a popular benchmark such as 3DMark, was being run. To bust this, UL Benchmarks tested the three devices with 'cloaked' benchmarks, or 'private benchmarks' as they call it. These apps are identical in almost every way to 3DMark, but lack the identification or branding that lets Huawei devices know when to overclock themselves to cheat the test.

Resultaterne var overraskende. Når enhederne ikke har nogen anelse om, at der køres et populært benchmark (eller hvis de ikke har nogen måde at fortælle, at 3DMark køres), chugs det med sin 'normale' hastighed, hvilket er 35% til 36% lavere. Reglerne, der binder enhedsproducenter fra at annoncere ULs 3DMark-scoringer, udtrykkeligt angiver, at enheden ikke må registrere appen og optimere dens hardware undervejs for at prøve testen. Huawei svarede på UL ved at oplyse, at det vil låse en ny 'performance mode' til brugere, der lader dem løfte deres SoC'er til de samme høje ure til ethvert program.
