Crysis, the much-anticipated DirectX 10 first person shooter scheduled to come out later this year, reportedly runs very well on an Nvidia 8700M-GT-equipped Toshiba Satellite notebook (the X205). An excerpt from the article reads:

"This is what PC gaming has been waiting for. Running on a high-powered Toshiba Satellite notebook packing a brand new DirectX 10-capable nVidia GeForce 8700M GT card, it can only be said that Crysis looked no less than stunning. The top shelf graphics accelerator had no issue churning out the visuals and handling the game’s physics; amazingly enough, all from a notebook. That alone makes Crysis, as well as nVidia’s new cards, worthy of anticipation."

We will have a full review of the Toshiba X205 notebook posted soon so keep an eye on the front page.
