Honestly....the products are great...but the presentation could have used some more prepared and enthusiastic presenters....

When they're too enthusiastic, people complain. When they remain more professional, people complain. ;)

People mostly complained when the product wasn't up to par with the marketing. Remember the FX chip hype?

I worry a little about the poor marketing in this presentation, the products are great but there's no point if the marketing doesn't spark more conversation.

Ironically, the Lichdom demo was running at something like 15 frames per second. That doesn't bode well.

It sounds like they are expecting to get their asses handed to them... not a good starting point after the last few flops.

Especially as what they have said has been pretty damn good too. That said I'd rather a lack-luster demo rather than a lack-luster product.

TrueAudio is incorporated as a separate DSP on the card.

Well seems it's still quite young, release date in 9 months. Time still for the performance to be tuned.

Love the silence followed by a single excited guy clapping. Sounds like the audience is losing the will to live or are busier on twitter etc than with the event.
