The Inquirer reports the guys from DigNews recently saw a demo of Crysis running on a DirectX 10 notebook, a Toshiba Satellite with a GeForce 8700M graphics card.

The reporters claim the game ran pretty well:
The 8700M is a little less than high-end and suffers slightly from being in a laptop, with all the constraints that that incurs. But that doesn't stop the DigNews fellas from being blown away by the looks of the game. "Damn, this game is beautiful," the writer enthuses. "It’s hard to take in the lush, organic jungle environments and not be impressed. The beautiful water, the wonderful lighting, the fantastic character models... and every last inch crafted with such amazing detail."

If it all sounds rosy, then it isn't quite - the writer admits that, "Even running on a top-of-the-line PC, the framerates still frequently shuddered," but we're amazed that a mid-range mobile part managed the game with any aplomb at all, frankly.
