    Thanks for another bad drivers ATI... My Mobility HD2600 usually sits at 38ºc in idle, when I put 10.7 > 10.11... My GPU at idle stays at 57ºc... So, thanks for trying to kill my notebook... :X

    Well there is a good reason why you should stay at the 10.7 then. Especially considering that the HD2K series has not gotten any real performance updates since well the 9 series of drivers.

    Much like the newer drivers don't seem to have any real performance upgrades for the HD4K series anymore.

    ..

    also have the mobility hd2600 and my idle temp is still 37°C after installing 10.11. but i noticed a HUGE improvment in flash apps. maybe because of the openCL driver? i thought only 5000 and above are capable...

    I wonder if it fixes the problem the other versions cause (for me) in Windows Media Player?
