Samsung responds to benchmark-rigging allegations claiming it's innocent
If you weren't around yesterday, here's what you missed: AnandTech has pretty much alleged that Samsung rigs benchmarks outright with a line of code on the Galaxy S4, which bumps its GPU clock from 480MHz to 533MHz, resulting in an 11% bump in scores.

While we've heard allegations like this before (HTC, we're eying you!), the level of scrutiny and the intensity of yesterday's testing actually painted a very plausible story.

Not so fast, however, for Samsung did not see it prudent to clam up and claimed innocence:
