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.

A joke? The only thing that's a joke is trying to claim this was a joke and being a shill.

They got caught with their pants down and tried to play it off. Simple as that, period.

What's even more funny/sad is this thing had a hard time playing that video too. lol! It struggled like hell in the beginning.
