Although the company MediaTek was often considered a less powerful alternative and its processors were pointing the finger, the situation regarding the quality of the company's products has partially returned to normal.

Currently, however, the portal AnandTech, specialized in comparing various technological attributes, has brought an extensive report in which MediaTek is repeatedly accused of falsifying performance tests of selected Android smartphones.
Among them is a popular model Redmi Note 8 Pro.
Counterfeiting from MediaTek: AnTuTu and GeekBench
Whether it's popular tests AnTuTu whether GeekBench, in several services, the maximum performance of devices appeared slightly higher than they actually reach.
The mentioned technology portal grouped a clear graph in which it points to falsified results, ie in which smartphones and in which services the results were falsified.
Among the devices that performed better on paper, ie their results were probably falsified, are also popular smartphones such as Redmi Note 8 Pro, Realme C3 or Oppo reno 3 pro.
How did the cheating go?
The portal editor has revealed that smartphones contain a file called "power_whitelist_cfg.xml ", which, in the case of performance testing in the most common benchmarks, switches the processor 's performance to the so - called sport mode. This mode generally increases CPU performance by up to 30 percent.
However, in certain tasks, the processor performs up to 70 percent better in the benchmark than it really should. The performance increase was applied to benchmarks such as PCMark, Antutu, Antutu 3DBench, Geekbench, AndroBecnh2 and others.
"MediaTek adheres to accepted industry standards and is confident that the performance tests exactly match the capabilities of our processors. We work closely with manufacturers to test our processors, but recently, brands have the flexibility to configure their own devices. Some companies design devices to operate at maximum power at reference values to show maximum chip capacity.
Of course, in real-world scenarios, there are a number of factors that determine how well a processor works. MediaTek processors are designed and optimized to provide the best possible user experience while maximizing battery life. If someone is using a performance-intensive program (such as a powerful video game), the chip intelligently adapts to provide continuous performance. This means that the user will be able to see different levels of performance in different applications, while the processor dynamically changes its performance.
We believe that displaying maximum processor characteristics in performance tests is consistent with other companies and provides consumers with an accurate picture of device performance. ”
