AMD have just released a new beta driver for the R9 290 series. They issued an email today which reads …
“We’ve identified that there’s variability in fan speeds across AMD R9 290 series boards. This variability in fan speed translates into variability of the cooling capacity of the fan-sink.
The flexibility of AMD PowerTune technology enables us to correct this variability in a driver update. This update will normalize the fan RPMs to the correct values.
If you have already bought one of these cards, then the link to the new Catalyst 13.11 Beta 9.2 driver is now available. You can download it here.
Kitguru says: AMD’s early battle against their poorly thought out reference cooler continues.
