New MacBook Pro Owners Report GPU Issues… Oy Vey

The bad news continues for owners of the new Apple MacBook Pros. Reports are starting to appear from a number of early recipients of the new MacBook Pros that there are a variety of GPU related issues ranging from ‘tearing’ to random red or black bars to unrecoverable crashes.

One user actually posted a video to YouTube illustrating the issue:

It is not clear how widespread this issue is. But given the USB-C fiasco which they tried to walk back, the lack of ability to repair or upgrade, or the lack of support for three finger drag gestures, their new and cool notebook seems to be a major headache for Apple.

Hopefully they have lots of “courage” to remedy these apparently defective computers.
