MacBook Pro Firmware Update Fixes Fan Speed Under Heavy Loads

Another MacBook Pro firmware update to adjust the behaviour of the system’s fans when it’s under a heavy workload. Normally, this would be too minor to warrant a post, but given the MacBook Pro’s rocky history with graphics cards and heat issues, it’s worth noting Apple’s still churning out fan-related fixes.

It’s for unspecified 15 and 17-inch models, but our unibody 15-incher said it didn’t need the update, so it’s probably for previous-gen models confirmed to have bad graphics cards. [Apple via ars]
