  • Catalyst 8.10 drivers out now and add fan-speed control

    Crazy..................on the same day as nvidia, ATI releases their new drivers.

    Catalyst 8.10 drivers add fan-speed control

    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.

    Have to give this a try. I can only use 8.8 so far in ArmA so hopefully this one will work?:row__637:

      I have a Dual Boot System: Vista 64bit and XP Pro 32bit, running Crossfire 2x ATI 4850's. Downloaded the new 8.10 drivers for both OS's and the drivers work great.

      Links for download:

      http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html - Just pick your OS.

      For FarCry 2 players, there is a 8.10 Hotfix Patch: http://support.ati.com/ics/support/d...estionID=38664

      Guru3d.com also has a drivers forum, http://forums.guru3d.com/forumdisplay.php?f=46, where the drivers are usually "leaked" before ATI posts them on their website... I got the 8.10's last week...

      My Settings:

      Normal Mode: 680Mhz/1080Mhz w/fan speed 45% = 47*C, nice and quiet.

      Game Mode: 710Mhz/1150Mhz w/fan speed 60% = 54-57*C, slight sound of fans.

      (the cards automatically idle at 500Mhz/750Mhz when on 2D)

      FPS on every game at high settings at 4x-8xAA is very high. See This Chart for some reference: http://www.guru3d.com/category/vga_charts/

      Game On!

        Anyone have these drivers running a 3870. I found the 7.3 the best for stability and wonder if these are any better
