We’ve seen it all at CES – vapor-products, stuff we won’t see for months (if ever), dummy products as show-pieces, and more. Now Intel – with the demo for their ‘bet the farm on it’ Ultrabooks … got caught faking a demo when the VLC control panel showed up a few times as shown above. The executive on stage tried to play it off, but the credibility of the entire show was lost.
Check out the video:
Since the demo – more to the point since being CAUGHT – Intel has admitted that the demo was a video done for ‘expediency’. Um … yeah. Not exactly a vote of confidence when you are trying to demonstrate DirectX 11 gaming performance … and use a video instead.
