    I’ve seen this info yesterday but since no one posted it yet as far as I’ve seen here it comes ;)

    Mobile Cats 10.9 are not gonna be released because of a PowePlay issue they had/caused.
    There’s not gonna be a fixed 10.9 version- AMD is going to skip this release and go straight to 10.10 next month

    Good to know.

    Personal, I have had zero issues with 10.7. So unless they give a good performance bump, I doubt I'll upgrade for awhile.

    I had a powerplay issue with 10.7, none with 10.8

    the issue was "oh hey, we just unplugged the battery and/or swapped to the intel gpu and back, now the card is stuck at 300/300 clocks until you turn powerplay off and on" I'm kinda glad that issue is gone. Don't want it to be back and 10.8 is working really nicely for me. So *shrugs*

    fix it in 10.10 ati

    At least they caught a bug before they released the drivers this time.

    I've found I like the 10.8's better than 10.7. More stable, and they feel slightly faster. Not the little stutters I've seen in the 10.7's, at least on my 5830.

    That sucks. Hopefully the 10.10s will offer some much-needed SC2 and Plants vs Zombies improvements for my card. :(
