Asus HD 3850 OC Gear is now on Asus' site.

Do you remember the 8600 GT with the OC Gear package? If you have read this site before, you may recall it. Well now, Asus has a page up for a new HD 3850 OC Gear. It seems like they have even added some more OC Gear display features to this one. Huzzah!

Here are the old display functions:

1. System Master Volume
2. GPU Speed
3. GPU Temperature
4. Current FPS (Frames Per Second) Info
5. GPU Fan Speed ++

++ You are allowed to adjust the Fan Speed only when installing an ASUS graphics card with fan control function.

Here are the new display functions:

1. System Master Volume
2. GPU Speed
3. GPU Stream Processor++
4. Memory Speed
5. GPU Temperature
6. Current FPS (Frames Per Second) Info
7. GPU Fan Speed +++

++ Adjust the GPU shader clock only for Nvidia’s model
+++ You are allowed to adjust the Fan Speed only when installing an ASUS graphics card with fan control function

So display function #3 has no purpose since the HD 3850 is not a Nvidia card. It might still display the HD 3850's stream processor speed, but since you can't "adjust" the speed, it does not really do anything for you.
