You could probably find the max output on cree's website. Looking quickly, I can't find that exact emitter.

Ain't a chance of being even remotely close to 1200 lumens...probably doesn't even output 10% of that. I have a professional grade 2xAA light with dedicated circuitry and a genuine XM-L emitter, and it is only rated at around 450 ANSI lumens on turbo.

Assuming this does have a genuine CREE XP-E LED (as many times these things use junk generic LEDs that look fairly similar to CREE LEDs), the XP-E emitters are only capable of outputting around 300 lumens maximium per their design specifications.

Even if overdriven the gains would be marginal over design specs (nowhere near 1200), and the current spike would cause rapid overheating/failure of the LED anyways...not to mention the 2xAAA batteries couldn't supply enough current to get anywhere near 1200 lumens even in a light with proper circuitry and an LED capable of such outputs.
