New graphics performance records set with ATI's RADEONT X800 XT Platinum Edition
Record scores include 15,738 in Futuremark's 3DMark2003 benchmark, shattering the previous record by over 5000 points
BARCELONA, Spain/ Munich, Germany - May 7, 2004 - ATI Technologies (NASDAQ: ATYT, TSX: ATY) demonstrated the awesome graphics power of the RADEON(tm) X800 XT Platinum Edition visual processing unit (VPU) by setting new graphics speed records in a variety of games and industry-leading graphics benchmarks. The event took place at System Builders' Summit in Barcelona.
Notably, a new world record score of 15,738 was set in Futuremark's 3DMark2003 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 3DMark2003 was set using the default screen resolution of 1024x768 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.
"The RADEON X800 XT Platinum Edition is clearly the weapon of choice for setting graphics speed records," said graphics enthusiast Sami Mäkinen, 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."
Scores in UT2004 (147 fps) and Tomb Raider (76 fps) were posted using the most demanding image quality settings commonly used by the gaming community: 1600x1200 pixels with 32-bit color depth using 4X anti-aliasing and 8X anisotropic filtering.
"Record scores in some of the world's most visually advanced games at the highest image quality settings is proof that with ATI's RADEON X800 XT Platinum Edition, users no longer need to sacrifice speed to get impeccable image quality," said Peter Edinger, Vice President, ATI Europe, Middle East and Africa.
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.
Also this year at Systems Builders' Summit, ATI took home three prestigious awards including Best Presentation, Best Hardware and Best Vendor.
