    I suppose being deceptive is better than having nothing to show is better in that situation.
    I recall nVidia and one of their cards being a false slap together which used wood screws back in the day so it's not unheard of.

    I say it's a loss to them but not necessarily to use unless the person watching is a fanboi and it hurts THEM to see such failure on the manufacturers behalf.

    Ultimately this is NOT the end result.

    I personally have no allegiance to Intel or AMD.
    I really hoped for Bulldozer to be a kick ass CPU but the ES showed otherwise so I posted that this is what we ARE going to get.
    Of course this upset the fanbois, whenever I posted as such.

    Best thing to do is not favor any brand, wait for the end result and choose which is the better within regards to bang for buck.:rockout:

    There is a simple reason most everyone does not believe Intel was being up front: they have yet to produce an acceptable GPU with working drivers.

    Just from history, it's more reasonable that Intel was being deceptive than being true. They have more to prove, so why "hide" something as great as this?

    With the number of screw ups in the GPU world they have had, I have no reason to believe that they were being forward.

    Was not Sandy Bridge at one point billed to be DX11 part? The new Atoms were suppose to be DX10 parts, but the DX10 part went missing in the part that is now shipping.

    Being that this was in front of financial people, they could catch a lot of flack from the government for misleading investors.

    Intel has definitely struggled on the GPU end of things. Most CPU companies do, and that's why they are generally not in the business of both. AMD only manages it because they bought ATi who was able to continually make competative stand-alone GPU's, so they have all the knowledge already there.

    doesnt surprise me really, intel has a history of dodgy practices, and backdoor deals.
    They usually still deliver a decent cpu though.

    Ah yes, 22nm, of course. I knew something didn't look right. :laugh: Fixed, thankyou. I think my small brain was confusing it with the 28nm of the HD7970. Such similar numbers, lol.

    :roll: That was such a beautifully scathing article. What an awesome title. :D

    In fact judging by its history of not so fair play policies I just can't stand Intel, knowing that in part it made it to be the Intel we know today because of those "little" under the belt kicks...:nutkick:

    It's the same reason I can't stand Sony, EA, Apple or any other company, group of people that states "A" in the open than do "B" under the table :shadedshu ... and furthermore have a dominant position in the markets they operate.

    Yes, you have a good point. Unfortunately, that makes for all of them. It seems that in this world, you can't be that successful without those dodgy practices. :ohwell:

    Qubit, why don't you update this with the vid and stills from Anandtech?

    Job well done!!! I was tempted to repost it after quite a few posts.

    Well as long as Intel will fix all dx11 driver issues in Ivy Bridge it's ok. Even tho I don't think I would like to play dx11 games with IGP 4000.

    jup sure looks like a vlc playback menu, atleast amd and nvidia runs demos on their own hardware not from a video file :confused:
