Intel's Fake Ultrabook Gaming Demo

Gizmodo has a video by way of Bright Side Of News showing that a CES 2012 ultrabook gaming demo by Intel was not actually a demonstration of the ultrabook's ability to run F1 2011 smoothly, but rather its ability to run a video of the racing game in a VLC media player window. They have a response from Intel saying the game has also been shown successfully live behind closed doors. They also have responses from readers saying the pre-recorded demo is legit, but decry the idea of giving a pass to such behavior. Thanks Neutronbeam.

And still you feel compelled to spew out crap about it, even though you didnt check everything.

Well, ok. Facts cant compete against blind hate I guess.

They still don't say the settings used (besides saying that it appears to be running in DX11), and F1 2011 isn't a particularly demanding game on the GPU (no slouch, but Codemasters' racing games tend to run okay on mid-range hardware).

You sound emotionally attached to this project, and it's probably best for you to take a few deep breaths and step back before people think of you as a blind, sputtering fanboy (if you haven't reached that point already). I'm just pointing out the blindingly obvious - the launch demonstration does not position this in a good light, the only concrete information we have on performance is dire, and you keep going back to a rather unimpressive YouTube video as "proof" that the system is running as it should.
