Many users use the test applications to compare the performance of their devices with other solutions. However, not always test results will reflect the actual performance for regular applications.
Thus, the resource AnandTech as a result of tests found that the mobile processor Samsung Exynos 5 Octa in the smartphone Galaxy S4 operates at a higher frequency during the running test applications. In particular, the operating frequency of the GPU when doing normal daily applications of 480 MHz. However, if you run the test applications it goes up to 533 MHz. Thereby providing some performance gain, but it is only visible in the tests, but not for daily use smartphone. Similarly, behave and computational core processor. During the execution of applications GLBenchmark 2.5.1, AnTuTu, Linpack and Quadrant them to function at a higher frequency than when the application starts GFXBench 2.
Additionally it is reported that in the firmware smartphone Galaxy S4 was discovered quite an interesting piece of code, called BenchmarkBooster. He points to the mobile device increase the operating frequency when running certain (test) applications.
