Live on stage in Taipei, during Computex 2005, ATI set new world records for both single and dual-card systems.
Building on one of ATI's brand new Radeon CrossFire mainboards, it achieved 9,265 with a single X850 card in 3DMark05 and a massive 15,498 using a pair of X850 cards in CrossFire formation.
The single Radeon X850 card was clocked at 860MHz core and 710MHz memory on a CrossFire mainboard with enthusiast features. The CrossFire Multi-GPU record was set with the GPU cores running at 769MHz and the memory at 695MHz.
