AMD Beta Driver Addresses R9 290 Variances

New version 13.11 beta Catalyst drivers are now available for AMD desktop and mobile accelerators on the AMD support website. The new drivers offer performance improvements and a couple of fixes, including one that addresses a mysterious variance in performance across various brands of their new R9 290 GPUs. They attribute the problem to fan-speed inconsistencies, which they are now addressing, saying the new drivers include a "PowerTune update to reduce variance of fan speed / RPM" on Radeon R9 290 series cards. Thanks HARDOCP.

Translation: We will make sure the fan runs at "bone saw setting" at all times because we are pushing this chip as hard as we can to compete with GK110 and we didn't put any effort into the cooling system.
