    Hey, it probably took them awhile to find something they could record that wasn't artifacting. :p Reply

    Correct you are :) Thats outright pathetic if true.

    Just think of where Intel would be right now if they weren't mooching off NVidia.

    Hardly uncommon. During the setup for GITEX a few years back a representative from Sapphire spent two days trying to get CrossFire working on a demo system on their booth opposite ours. Performance was dire and they couldn't get it stable.

    On the day of the show it was suddenly running perfectly. Nudge the display cabinet and the mouse would move, popping up the WMP control bar.

    There are a number of reasons you'd do it however, we use pre-recorded demos at work for presentations as getting in and out of a game simply takes too long for a live demo, although they presumably had many machines at their disposal.

    Or maybe he just wanted to avoid having to go "Oops I crashed." Reply

    Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a rigged demo.

    ...No wait

    Almost as lame as Bulldozer press demos. Maybe they hired the same marketing team.

    Seriously though, if the IGP in ivy could reach close to current Llano capabilities, that would be very exciting, since the CPU is much better.

    Evaluating Ivy Bridge's GPU just got a lot more interesting. Reply

    I knew the beret was going to be a problem. People always see the beret and fail to recognize that Mooly is a guy who wears many hats. There is a case that the guy is overstretched as he was not adequately scripted/briefed so the demo did not do what was intended. On the other hand, he is immensely talented and the chips Intel produces are pretty well received in the marketplace. Some of that credit is due to Mooly. As long as the chips work well, an occasional blown demo is OK. There will be time for independent verification of performance claims so it is not like the wool is being pulled over anyone's eyes.

    Intel "faked" a computer demo so I'm DONE, FINISHED, buying any Intel CPU's. Because let's face it, they have a LOOONG track record of faking demos, missing release deadlines, missing performance targets, etc...

    (little sarcasm there let's get real guys)

    I think the commenter's here are a little over the top regarding the craziness of a video demo... Reply
