Toshiba’s new gaming notebook is DirectX 10 compatible and features NVIDIA’s new GeForce 8700M GT graphics processing unit (GPU) with up to 512MB of graphics memory and an HD DVD-ROM drive for the ultimate gaming and high-definition experience.

Starting at $1,999.99, the Satellite X205 continues Toshiba’s tradition of meeting the needs of gaming enthusiasts by providing high-end components at a reasonable price. It is also the company’s first notebook to feature the striking new Flare Carmine high-gloss lid and a built-in Webcam.

Taking the gaming experience to the next level, NVIDIA’s highest performance DirectX 10 GPU empowers gamers to take full advantage of Microsoft’s cutting-edge graphics technology within Windows Vista and deliver ground-breaking visual effects as well as dynamic lighting and shading. The NVIDIA GeForce 8700M GT GPU, combined with the Satellite X205’s brilliant 17-inch diagonal widescreen TruBrite display, propels next-generation games to new heights of realism by producing realistic textures in hair, facial and body features, while providing a richly detailed environment for an immersive gaming experience.

To enjoy the precision and vividness of high-definition digital entertainment in a portable device, the Satellite X205 incorporates an HD DVD-ROM drive, providing users with the ease and comfort of taking their favorite HD movies on the road. Also, the Satellite X205-S9359 includes a USB external HDTV tuner for playing live HDTV from an antenna or cable or satellite set-top box.

Toshiba’s new gaming notebooks are powered by the new the Intel Centrino Duo processor technology, which is made up of several high-end components, including the Intel Core™ 2 Duo T7000 Processor sequence, Mobile Intel 965 chipset and new Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN supporting draft 802.11n wireless connectivity. The new Intel microarchitecture provides users with greater connectivity options while enhancing graphics performance and boosting overall battery life.
