ATI demonstrated the awesome graphics power of the RADEON™ X800 XT Platinum
Edition VPU by setting new graphics speed records* in a variety of
games and industry-leading graphics benchmarks. The event took place at System
Builder Summit in Barcelona. Notably, a new world record score of 15,738 was set
in Futuremark’s 3DMark03 graphics benchmark, easily breaking the previous score
of 10,008, which was also set using ATI graphics technology.

The record score of 15,738 in 3DMark03 was set using the default screen
resolution of 1024×768 pixels with 32-bit color depth, as required by Futuremark
for eligibility in Futuremark’s Hall of Fame. A record score of 33,484 was also
set in Futuremark’s popular 3DMark2001 benchmark at the same resolution. All
applications were run on a system featuring an overclocked RADEON X800 XT
Platinum Edition running at 715 MHz engine clocks and 639 MHz memory clocks, an
overclocked Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor, 1 GB of DDR SDRAM, a 40 GB IDE hard
drive, proprietary cooling technology, and CATALYST drivers that conform to the
Futuremark specification for posting Hall of Fame benchmark scores.

“The RADEON X800 XT Platinum Edition is clearly the weapon of choice for
setting graphics speed records,” said graphics enthusiast Sami Mäkinen (macci),
who designed, assembled and operated the PC used to set the record graphics
scores. “ATI truly delivers monster performance with their latest generation of
graphics technology.”
