2011 iMac 27"/OS X 10.7.2/ATI Radeon HD 6770M GPU.

Receive the following messages during BOINC Client start:

Wed Nov 2 17:18:37 2011 | | OpenCL: ATI GPU 0: ATI Radeon HD 6770M (driver version 1.0, device version OpenCL 1.1, 512MB)
Wed Nov 2 17:18:37 2011 | | ATI GPU is OpenCL-capable


Messages during work fetch:

Wed Nov 2 17:32:51 2011 | Collatz Conjecture | Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
Wed Nov 2 17:32:51 2011 | Collatz Conjecture | Requesting new tasks for ATI
Wed Nov 2 17:32:52 2011 | Collatz Conjecture | Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
Wed Nov 2 17:32:52 2011 | Collatz Conjecture | Message from server: ATI GPU: Upgrade to the latest driver to process tasks using your computer's GPU
Wed Nov 2 17:32:52 2011 | Collatz Conjecture | No work sent

I've conducted a dialog with multiple sites and sources on upgrade paths for the 6770M (including Apple) and it appears that there are no "more current" drivers. Is this message associated with a lack of support for the 6770M GPU rather than the version of the drivers?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
Jon
