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.

WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO?? I HAVE LOST ALL FAITH IN HUMANITY!! IT'S SO TERRIBLE, OH SO TERRIBLE. I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY LIED AND DECEIVED ME, GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN US. PLEASE MAKE THIS RIGHT AND SHOW THE GAME BEING PLAYED FOR REALS.

Yes, I almost cut my wrists too.
But then I realized that this originated from the biggest AMD fanboy site there is and I watched the video myself. Yep, now my stash of razor blades wont have to suffer today.

Other, more impartial sources have reported the same thing.

That being said, AnandTech was reporting one of their test platforms for Ivy Bridge was available to play around with, and it gave a Windows Experience Index score of 3.6.

...if that's not an indictment of what their integrated graphics are capable of, I don't know what is. (For comparison, my two-and-a-half year old mid-high-rang laptop scores a 4.8, and my desktop scores a 7.1.)

Maybe you should have actually read that Anandtech article and watched the video with the HD 4000 running the game live instead of just looking at the picture.

But ok, I see that some people think the Windows score is the ultimate benchmark. lol... Geez...
