Posted Thu, Sep 24, 2009 by Martuk

Turbine's popular MMORPGs Dungeons and Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited and The Lord of the Rings Online will be getting support for DirectX 11 with the new ATI Eadeon HD 5800 series graphics cards. Ten Ton Hammer spoke with Turbine about when the new DirectX 11 support might be available for their games, but for the moment there is no official timeframe. We'll update you with more information as it becomes available.

Designed and built for purpose: Modeled on the full DirectX 11 specifications, the ATI Radeon HD 5800 series of graphics cards delivers up to 2.72 TeraFLOPS of compute power in a single card, translating to superior performance in the latest DirectX 11 games, as well as in DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL titles in single card configurations or multi-card configurations using ATI CrossFireX™ technology. When measured in terms of game performance experienced in some of today’s most popular games, the ATI Radeon HD 5800 series is up to twice as fast as the closest competing product in its class.5 allowing gamers to enjoy incredible new DirectX 11 games – including the forthcoming DiRT™2 from Codemasters, and Aliens vs. Predator™ from Rebellion, and updated version of The Lord of the Rings Online™ and Dungeons and Dragons Online® Eberron Unlimited™ from Turbine – all in stunning detail with incredible frame rates.
