HUAWEI P20 CAUGHT ON A CHEATING ON BENCHMARK RESULT
Huawei has been found enhancing some of its best cell phones to over-perform on benchmark tests. On Tuesday, AnandTech found that Huawei’s P20 had been modified to boost execution, particularly when running 3DMark, a prominent benchmarking application. Today, the organization behind 3DMark caught up with an announcement saying that it had affirmed the discoveries and would delist the P20, and also three other Huawei phones with comparative conduct, from its benchmark leaderboards.

The delisted phones including the P20, P20 Pro, Nova 3, and Honor Play. Huawei admitted to this conduct in an announcement given to Android Authority, saying that its phones are intended to modify their execution in light of the application that is running.
In any case, the manner in which that Huawei actualized that conduct isn’t permitted. While phones can modify their execution as a major aspect of their normal conduct under high workloads, they can’t be hard coded to boost their conduct in light of the fact that a particular benchmark application is running. That is the thing that Huawei appears to have done, as per UL, which is behind the 3DMark programming.
At the point when UL ran an interior rendition of 3DMark, which Huawei’s phones couldn’t perceive the name of, the phones performed more terrible in the test. That showed that the phones weren’t really sufficiently brilliant to distinguish elite requests alone, which implied the benchmark score wasn’t a precise impression of how the phone would deal with a regular application without extraordinary consideration from Huawei.
As a punishment, 3DMark has expelled these phones’ rankings from its leaderboard and enhanced their postings on its site with a note that the phone’s “maker has not followed UL benchmark rules.” Many of their outcomes have been removed too.
