Default Re: ATI uses enthusiast's overclock score in press release

Using a standard RADEON X800 XT Platinum Edition with FutureMark approved drivers, third party testers at sites like www.driverheaven.net have scored over 5800 points in the new 3DMark05 benchmark, revealing the RADEON X800 to be more than 20% faster than its nearest competitor. Hardcore overclockers are also using their RADEON X800 XT cards to achieve unbelievably high scores. Sami Mäkinen, a well known overclocker, achieved a high score of 8250 earlier today
(service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm05=38454 ).




Funny they had to mention driverheaven lol, then the link doesn't even work ! wonder why lol.

gotta love how both companies make 3dmark05 seem like the be-all determining factor in a gfx card purchase.....throw that in-game performance out the window...
