ATI Radeon(TM) HD 2900 XT Sets New Performance Record In 3DMARK(R)05 Benchmark.
SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced that enthusiast Marcus Hultin (alias Kinc) of NordicHardware.com used the ATI Radeon[TM] HD 2900 XT GPU to successfully set a new single card record in Futuremark 3DMark[R]05, with a score of 30,092. Hultin's system was operating an ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT tuned to 1144 MHz engine clock and 999 MHz memory clock at a temperature below freezing.

"It's awesome that someone has broken the 3DMark05 record with an AMD graphics card running on drivers which have been fully tested and approved by Futuremark--it shows a remarkable level of performance."
