Default Re: My 8800GTX vs 4870 tests

Also on the single 4870 that you tested LOTRO with before, how was the performance? Did you have any of the dreaded "hitch" that a lot of people (including myself) suffer from on that game? Love the game and if I can get rid of the hitching in DX10 mode that will be more than worth the upgrade.

Hi Marll, in LOTRO DX9 performance is outstanding, framerate is very high even with high levels of AA and AF, I would say the card scales pretty well here. But I'm interested in DX10 and unfortunately DX10 is broken since Book 14 patch. I would say that one single 4870 card (not x2) is more than enough for LOTRO, but I really hope the fix DX10 soon
