We discuss the build up of the elliptic flow v(2) in a transport approach at fixed viscosity. We point out that in the indermediate transverse momentum region flows are also sensitive to microscopic details of the cross section, while hydrodynamics suffers from large uncertainties due to the non-equilibrium correction to the distribution function. We show, exploring the temperature dependence of eta/s, that a study of v(2) in a wide p(T) range allows to understand the difference behind the collective flows at LHC respect to RHIC. In particular the transport approach provides a tool able to naturally describe the rise and fall and saturation of the v(2)(p(T)).
