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.

Video of the actual game being played, and actual settings used (since someone here mentioned the lack of settings).

My guess is the whole video thing was just done to try and avoid any issues with the game, and the loading time. And if the guy who is driving sucks, people watching him continually crash isn't very interesting either. In a live demo, its usually easier and more reliable to do a video than gameplay.
