NVIDIA has plenty of reasons to be smiling at the start of 2011. The firm's gaming GPUs are finally realising their potential, the Tegra side of the business is really picking up, and there's a clear, logical roadmap in place for the next few years.
Coming back to today, NVIDIA provided a glimpse into some unnamed products at its booth at the CeBIT trade show. While we can't talk about an upcoming high-end card
that is the GTX 590 - NVIDIA promised to hunt us down and do, well, nasty things to us if we did - the firm had some rather move accessible news on just how well its GPUs will play Crysis 2.
The eagerly-anticipated game will ship with an underlying DX9 API on March 25, with the DX11 patch coming a while later, and it'll run just fine on a quality laptop.
NVIDIA's Ben Berraondo was on hand to show an Alienware laptop outfitted with a GeForce GTX 460M mobile graphics card run through Crysis 2 at 'Gamer' settings. What's more, it did so with GPU-bashing 3D Vision activated.
Looking smooth and lush on a laptop, maybe Crysis 2 may not be the system-killing title many had feared. Make your own minds up by watching the video, below.
