Intel fakes DirectX 11 ultrabook gaming demo (video)

Posted on Monday, January 09 2012 @ 23:39:11 CET by

Bright Side of News noticed shenanigans at Intel's CES 2012 press conference. Intel's Mooley Eden displayed Sandy Bridge's graphical capabilities and got behind a racewheel to showcase F1 2011, but instead of playing the game in real-time all he did was playback a video clip in VLC.
Mooley got behind one of the Ultrabooks and set himself up behind a racing wheel. Upon doing so the demonstration appeared to hesitate and you could, for a split second, see that this was not actually the game itself but rather the game recorded on a different system which was then saved as a video file and played through VLC. So, yes, this laptop can sort-of play full screen HD video through VLC, but no it cannot play F1 2011 smoothly. If Intel really was confident in their graphical capabilities this wouldn’t have been an issue, but they knew that it was not likely to play at a reasonable frame rate for a good demo. Furthermore, Intel did not make any disclaimers saying that this was not a live demo, but rather a pre-recorded demo played during the ‘live demo’. If you’d like to see Mooley Eden fake driving around the F1 car while basically watching a video of it, feel free to check out our YouTube video below.
