On the new MacBook 12 inch (early 2016) the Lightroom gpu acceleration does not work. Whereas I can turn it on, it always disables itself again and gives me the "Graphics processor acceleration has been disabled due to errors" message.

I'm on a 1,2 GHz MacBook with an Intel HD 515, OS X 10.11.4 and Lightroom CC 2015.5.1

Hi Martin,

Could you try out the Mac OS X 10.11.5 beta 3 (15F28b) to see if it address the problem? There was a fix to the issue after the Mac OS X 10.11.4 build was sent to factory for the 2016 MacBook.
