Default Catalyst 8.10 drivers add fan-speed control

Starting with the speed boosts, AMD says users of Radeon HD 4000- and Radeon HD 3800-series cards can look forward to frame-rate increases of up to 15% in Unreal Tournament 3. Those using the same cards in CrossFire multi-GPU configurations may also see a 2-5% improvement in Prey.

More interestingly, the Catalyst 8.10 release adds a fan speed control setting in the Overdrive tab of the Catalyst Control Center for Radeon HD 4000-series cards. AMD says the feature will give users "greater control and flexibility when over-clocking their graphics accelerator," but we suspect those who like their PCs quiet will find it interesting, too. Considering how hot the Radeon HD 4850 and 4870 already run, though, we probably wouldn't recommend reducing fan speeds on those cards.
