Ok quick question. Would an Alienware M18x with the 2630QM and 2 GTX580m's be able to handle DX11 Max Settings?Quote

I think it's more than able. There are some benchmarks in this article: http://laptoping.com/nvidia-geforce-gtx-580m-laptop-video-card-announced-benchmarked.htmlQuote

Well a 580m is around the performance of a GTX460, so using SLI GTX460 you'll get a minimum of 25 and average of 40.3 according to Tom's Hardware

But that is with AA off, but everything else maxed out. 25 FPS minimum is what I would consider playable, although personally I would prefer it never to drop below 30.

Also Tom, the high textures haven't fixed everything yet. Metal work still needs some work for example.Quote
