Mistakes happen at conventions all the time. I do think Intel should have clarified it was a video from the beginning and explained the whole time constraints thing. They clearly tried to be a little deceptive which is just wrong...
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.
