Some New MacBook Pros Suffer From Major Graphics Issues

It seems that plenty of new MacBook Pros are acting up when they are being pushed with intensive tasks, and Apple isn’t sure whether it is a software or hardware issue. Makes for a pretty decent screensaver, though. increasing number of early adopters have reported serious graphics issues on Apple's latest notebooks. The glitches and other problems appear to be most prevalent on built-to-order 15-inch models, but standard 13-inch and 15-inch configurations are also affected. MacRumors reader Jan Becker, for example, said the graphics began to glitch on his new high-end 15-inch MacBook Pro, equipped with built-to-order AMD Radeon Pro 460 graphics, while transcoding video with Adobe Media Encoder in Premiere Pro. The notebook subsequently crashed.
