I am thinking hard about getting a laptop soon and all I see is 79xx solutions available. I think I would much rather have an 8xxx chip with the DX10 capabilities.

Anywho, any idea if/when something might be available?

Thx

yeah, the gf has one in her lappy.

it's pretty sick for a laptop. really, it runs the crysis beta just fine
(by just fine i mean as well as all the other 8800 cards)

and, every new title we've tested on it runs extremely well

if an 8800M is coming out, then i'd definitely wait for that if you want it in a lappy.

Must be an 8700M. There's no way anything lower than that is running Crysis beta anything like a desktop...
