Two days ago Intel made the mistake of playing a video of a DX11 game (F1 2011) instead of running the game itself on an Ivy Bridge Ultrabook. We mentioned the gaffe in our original post on the topic and followed up yesterday with a video that showed the title working on an Ivy Bridge notebook. Unfortunately the Ultrabook from the original demo wasn't available at the time, but we finally got some hands on time with the exact system that Mooly used in the original presentation:

The Ivy Bridge part inside runs at 2.0GHz by default but it supports configurable TDP, which is where the 2.5GHz value that Windows reports comes from. Intel isn't entirely sure how it's going to report configurable TDP values at this point. The part is a 17W ULV CPU.

The game is F1 2011, we confirmed it was once-again running in DX11 mode and at Medium quality defaults at the Ultrabook's native 13x7 resolution. 
 
Video of the system is running below:

    Wait, not only is it spot on but I looked up the video you referenced because I've never seen it.. and WOW.

    Also added HotHardware RSS feed to FF.

    Basically, watch that video, compare this with Intel's presentation and learn what pure, unadulterated rape is.

    Ok... That was a lot of accidental posts. Needless to say the original page the video exists on is here

    Our AMD meeting is tomorrow late afternoon, can't post coverage of something we haven't been to yet :) The show is far from over :)

    Take care,

    Hah, AMD is still waiting on GF for one of these processors.. The machines there are running Bulldozer cores and it takes a LONG time for them to get anything meaningful done. Reply

    So Intel gets called out on the use of pre-recorded footage of a game, and they rectify it by allowing press to actually experience the game on their product, proving the performance is accurate. Exactly how is Anand bending over backward for Intel? Reply

    and some like you who are in serious denial are trying REALLY hard to be an ostrich and keep your head buried in the sand Reply

    So Mooly, the guy in a beret, clicked the wrong icon. He was badly scripted. How embarrassing. Now Intel has rounded up multiple independent journalists to verify that the demo works great if you click the correct icon. Lets all pile on because a wrong icon click is a big deal? Reply

    Note that Intel didn't ask us to do any of this. Just responding to reader requests :)

    Take care,
    Anand
