New MacBook Pro Users Experience GPU Issues [Video]
A growing number of new MacBook Pro users are complaining about random GPU lags and glitches occurring while using their laptops. In most cases, the issues appear when running resource-intensive apps like Adobe Media Encoder, Adobe Premiere, Photos and some others. It is currently unknown, whether the problem is connected with faulty GPU chips or other hardware issues. Moreover, it is difficult to tell how many MacBook Pro laptops are affected.
Below you can take a look at the video shared by one MacBook Pro user working in Adobe Media Encoder.
It’s too early as of yet to tell the scale of the issue, or whether there are any meaningful patterns to them. It could just be the usual tiny number of random hardware failures you’re going to get in any large sampling of any tech product, though driver issues have been suggested as another possibility. Issues are being reported both with integrated and discrete GPUs on the 15-inch MacBook Pro.
Apple hasn’t yet commented on the issue, but if it does, this will be greatly appreciated. Hopefully, the problem is not serious and Apple won’t have to launch a repair campaign for the laptops.
