    Frosty antics with the ATi RADEON X1900 XTX

    Take two lunatics, one FX-60 processor, one Radeon X1900 XTX and some liquid nitrogen and you get one hell of a 3DMark score. Project World Record seeks to beat any benchmarking records out there, and the project is doing a pretty good job.

    Latest efforts with an X1900 XTX have provided a 3DMark 2005 score of over 16000, nearly 500 more than the previous record with such a card. Better still, this card, at 870MHz GPU, 910MHz memory (1820MHz DDR) can out perform quite a few SLI/Crossfire systems. The ATi kit these maniacs have got hold of was provided by Andrzej Bania, ATi Technologies' PR and Marketing Guru for Northern Europe & South Africa.
    After almost a week of benchmarking "ATi Radeon X1900 XTX - Project World Record " turned out pretty good and this article is far from over. We know that our dynamic duo will be reunited next weekend and then with two Radeon X1900 cards. This is to do some serious Radeon X1900 CrossFire tests, both with the Intel 955XE and Athlon 64 FX-60 platforms.
    Read about the crazy goings-on over at here, where the project continues...

    Still, everyone's waiting for the SLI/ Crossfire results to see the real silly numbers!

    Also, imagine; this year will be Conroe @ 3.33Ghz Stock / FX 64@3Ghzish and a new Nvidia corelogic with 4xSLI of thier new flagship card! A Nice 2KW PSU needed, no doubt!
