Xbox One Demos Running On NVIDIA Hardware?

So the big "OMFG XBONE IS TEH CHEETARS!" rumor making the rounds today claims that Microsoft was running Xbox One game demos on "high end HP PCs." The proof? The two pictures you see below showing a custom PC with a GeForce GTX in it. The obvious problems with the story is that isn't a HP computer and no one knows what was actually running on that PC before the picture was taken (could have just been non-playable looped demos, etc.). Anyhow, we'll get to the bottom of this for you but I thought I'd share these in the mean time. Thanks to ShamisOMally for the tip.

*UPDATED* Michael Wilford, Studio Director of Twisted Pixel Games, said the hardware running his game at the show was the decision of his company, not Microsoft. Wilford also told Jonathan Blow to blow it out his ass for criticizing the hardware his team is using to demo the game. So, what we have here is simply a matter of a developer that chose to run his game on hardware / software of his choice.
