AMD is proud to be a supporting partner for Turbine in the development of The Lord of the Rings Online. Through the AMD Gaming Evolved program, we have helped with the implementation of both DirectX® 11 technology and ATI Eyefinity multi-monitor technology into the game. LOTRO has been awarded AMD Eyefinity Ready status for a truly immersive gaming experience on up to 6 monitors.
“At Turbine, we see ourselves as having a pioneering role in the 3D massively multiplayer role-playing game (MMORPG) space, being one of the first publishers to support DirectX 10,” said Christopher J. Dyl, Vice President, Technology, Turbine. “Thanks to our close partnership with AMD we have followed through with DirectX 11 support which is advantageous to Turbine in a number of ways, and allows our titles to be designed in a way that enables cutting edge performance for the masses.”
