Every now and then, when we’re running benchmarks on finished goods such as laptops, phones and even individual components such as graphics cards, we’d come across a score that simply does not match expectations, rather it leaps over the expected numbers. Not all manufacturers indulge in such blatant fraud. Some are a bit subtle and don’t inflate their numbers that much. Competition makes people cross ethical lines. We’ve seen so many brands try to pass off DSLR images as photos taken by the phone camera. Even more brands utilising hidden power profiles that only kick in when a benchmarking application is running. It’s a very human thing as we’ve seen recently with the professional CS: GO scene in India. Upon getting caught, some deny any wrongdoing, some confess and some act stupid and try to cover it up with asinine actions or reasons.
