In the age of the internet, companies find it difficult to keep future products secret. Physical products are exposed Mr. Crystal Cam Processors as well as graphics cards appear in databases for performance testing, where employees of manufacturers mistakenly upload results. On the processor side, the most common source of performance leaks is Geekbench, which is dumped regularly by the entire Twitter team.
Primate Labs prevents pre-release hardware test results from displaying on Geekbench Browser. Pre-release hardware includes engineering samples (ES), qualification samples (QS), and retail hardware not yet available for sale.
Primate Labs, which is behind Geekbench, is now announcing that results for devices not yet launched will not be included in the Geekbench database. This means early engineering samples (ES) and Qualification samples (QS) It can still be tested with the test suite, but the results from these processors are no longer listed on the official website.
Both ES and QS processors are usually early versions, and their functionality and frequencies do not necessarily reflect the final product. Additionally, Intel used to provide ES processors for media prior to launch. However, in this case, it’s all about the final consumer copies, where the labeling is instead meant to make it easier to trace leaks and make reselling more difficult.
The results for Geekbench blocking unreleased processors aren’t necessarily bad. Performance testing has been known to give difficulty in interpreting results, especially when one processor is assigned versus another. This is because new instructions or hardware acceleration in the processor greatly increases the score in the subtest and thus greatly exaggerates the final score.
