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.

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.)


Weird, I have a Core i5 M 460 with Intel integrated chip that gets 4.6, what the hell happened with Ivy Bridge?

Score details:
Processor: 6.9
RAM (6gb): 6.9
Graphics: 4.6
Gaming Graphics: 5.3 (eh? I figured this would be worse...)
Primary Hard Disk: 5.9
