Intel fakes DirectX 11 demo at CES

In general I'm a fan of Intel but have always thought they should just stay away from gpu's they never really have been very good at it.

This seems quite embarrassing though.

Quote:
In a move that casts yet another shadow over Intel’s ability to craft a decent integrated GPU, the engineers from Santa Clara were caught cheating at its CES 2012 press conference last night. Mooley Eden, the general manager of Intel’s PC group, was on stage to show off the the Direct X 11 capabilities of Ivy Bridge’s HD Graphics 2500 GPU — but instead of actually driving a lap in F1 2011, Eden cheated and pressed play on a pre-rendered video in VLC.

I don't know why a company has to try this trick every year, they always get caught at it.

His cool hat made him do it

Embarrassing indeed.

At least it actually does seem to work:

I'm shocked.
Intel are such a bastion of corporate ethics.
They've never been caught doing anything dodgy, unlike MS.

No doubt, they should stick to what they are good at, and leave the specialization to the people that have been doing it for nearly 2 decades.

Considering AMD bought ATI and Nvidia is moving towareds building complete chipsets (like the TYegra series), it makes perfect sense.

The IGC may not surpass the very high end DGCs, but it will be sufficient for many user's lower ends needs.

They're both too stubborn about how they do things for a merger there to really be successful.

Which is a good thing for the consumer! More companies= more competition =lower prices. A few years from now ~5+ I can see Intel Integrated GPUs as having a bigger market share and catching up to AMD and Nvidia.
