I currently have a 2011 17" MacBook Pro, one of the models affected by the failing ATI GPU. Currently I only run OS X (macOS?) on it, with auto graphics switching, so I barely use the discrete GPU at all. But knowing that Apple's current service campaign runs out on Dec 31, 2016, is it worthwhile to attempt to "burn out" the ATI GPU by forcing discrete graphics on, and/or installing Windows via boot camp, in order to get a logic board replacement before the service campaign expires? The machine works perfectly otherwise, and I plan on keeping it for a while, being apple's last 17" MBP model.
