MBP possible GPU issue

MBP possible GPU issue
March 21, 2011 Oskar

lately it has been discovered that new macbook pro has problems with new ATI GPU, it freezes if you try overloading it.

this is something I’ve been waiting for, because if the problem lies in the firmware, Apple will release a firmware patch that can be modified for Zeus to allow ATI 6000-series flashing.

UPDATE:
Apple says:
“we are sure that this IS an firmware/driver related problem”

we’ll see

    I think it was something with the cooling pipe going over the GPU, wasn’t it? But my memory is fuzzy. Great that you’re still into the research and craft, though. Big props!
