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.

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...

Some of us read the original article from their mobile phone, where video playback is spotty at best.

That being said, after reading the text of the article, I wasn't particularly inclined to see the video, especially since their impressions weren't particularly positive.
