Computex 2008: AMD showcases Core 2 Duo T9600 notebook at Computex

AMD tried to pull a fast one and is showing off an unmarked ASUS notebook running an Intel Core 2 Duo T9600 at their booth. Why? Because it has the Radeon HD3850 X2. They have removed all stickers on the notebook itself, which has been placed on a desk in front of other AMD based systems. We opened up 3DMark06 when no one was looking and it reveals the Intel CPU. I guess AMD could not get a notebook with their own chipset in combination with the new high-end mobile GPU in time for the show.
