We reported last week that Samsung was allegedly manipulating benchmarking tests with its Note 3 handset by temporarily boosting performance to yield faster performance, however the company has now come out to deny those allegations.

"The Galaxy Note 3 maximizes its CPU/GPU frequencies when running features that demand substantial performance," Samsung said to CNET UK. "This was not an attempt to exaggerate particular benchmarking results. We remain committed to providing our customers with the best possible user experience."

Many within the industry remain unconvinced, however, as none of the above explains why the device sees a boost of up to 50% in performance when running several of the industry standard benchmarking tools, and the jury is still very much out on the authenticity of Samsung's claims.
