+ - Apple Admits Nvidia GPU Defect in MacBook Pros->

bigwophh writes "The bruhaha over defective Nvidia mobile graphics chips keeps rolling along, even months after the initial headlines have faded. Despite Nvidia's promises to Apple that its Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT-based MacBook Pros had dodged the bullet and were immune from the defect, Apple now counters that it wasn't, in fact, so lucky. "In July 2008, NVIDIA publicly acknowledged a higher than normal failure rate for some of their graphics processors due to a packaging defect. At that same time, NVIDIA assured Apple that Mac computers with these graphics processors were not affected." Potentially affected units are 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pro notebooks with Nvidia GeFroce 8600M GT GPUs, built between May 2007 and September 2008."
