Nordic Hardware just posted a news article about Crotale and mmouse overclocking attempts with X1900XTX and X1900 CrossFire. Crotale used an overclocked X1900XTX to reach 50079 with 3DMark2001, which is a new world record with ATI, and 15000+ with 3DMark05. mmouse on the other hand used a X1900 CrossFire setup to score, among others, 10000+ with 3DMark06.
