Futuremark bans Samsung and HTC devices for cheating

While cheating in benchmarking is largely a thing of the best in the desktop PC market, it seems to be quite rampart in the smartphone industry. After reports of manipulation in benchmarks like AnTuTu and GFXBench, Futuremark now reports that it has banned several Samsung and HTC devices from its 3DMark benchmark database for artificial inflation of benchmark scores. Devices banned from 3DMark include the HTC One, HTC One Mini, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (Exynos 5 Octa and MSM8974), and the Samsung Galaxy Note III (Exynos 5 Octa and MSM8974).
People rely on Futuremark benchmarks to produce accurate and unbiased results. That's why we have clear rules for hardware manufacturers and software developers that specify how a platform can interact with our benchmark software. In simple terms, a device must run our benchmarks without modification as if they were any other application.

When a device is suspected of breaking our rules it is delisted. 3DMark scores from delisted devices should not be used to compare devices. Delisted devices appear unranked, and without scores, at the bottom of the 3DMark Device Channel and the Best Mobile Devices list on our website.
