Many fans of Apple laptops was looking forward to a radical renovation of the “professional” MacBook Pro. The machines were announced, they received many innovations, including ultra-slim, USB-C and OLED touch-panel Touch Bar, but not everything turned out well for all. It is already known that the owners of a number of models encountered image distortions on the display.
In the process of working with MacBook Pro the screen may be distorted: the colorful spots, discolored and distorted picture. Some of the image turns red, green (or other color), some of it just “breaks”. There are other manifestations, but they are all associated with the image. Basically the problem relates to older versions of the MacBook Pro, equipped with GPU Radeon Pro 460, but the survey showed that a failure occurs on all models of the new Apple laptops.
In the MacRumors suggest that the new Apple laptops is causing third party software and not a manufacturing defect of the computers themselves. Reader edition Jean Becker said that his 15-inch MacBook Pro with graphic card Radeon Pro 460 problems occur during rendering video in Adobe Premiere Pro.
Becker took your MacBook Pro to an Apple store, where he replaced the device. However, the problem was evident in the new instance. After a few days he was contacted by Apple representatives who were asked to reproduce the crashing on the phone and asked them to open remote access to your laptop to clarify the reasons.
The most frequent complaints are for the MacBook Pro graphics Radeon Pro 460, but the problem with the image is that of the model with Radeon Pro Radeon Pro 450 and 455. There is currently no evidence to suggest that the problem is associated with defect graphic cards. Distortion can appear on the screen in moments of high load during video processing, synchronization, Photo library, working with Photoshop and Lightroom.
