    Post up your MemVendorID of your card. State whether you have freezing or not. Follow the steps below.

    This was posted in the macrumors news regarding the possible hardware issue in iMac's.


    Run this in a Shell:
    Code:
    ioreg -l | grep ATY | grep Mem
    
    Post both the MemVendorID and MemRevisionID and state your freezing issues (if any)

    Is this the field "Vendor"?

    If so, mine is ATI (0x1002) and it is a freezer.

    Here is everything from mine:

    Chipset Model: ATI,RadeonHD2600
    Type: Display
    Bus: PCIe
    PCIe Lane Width: x16
    VRAM (Total): 256 MB
    Vendor: ATI (0x1002)
    Device ID: 0x9583
    Revision ID: 0x0000
    ROM Revision: 113-B2250F-212
    EFI Driver Version: 01.00.212

    I am not freezing other then iTunes taking 5 minutes to load everytime I start it up. I have a very small library of music with no movies or shows.

    I am still on 10.4.10 but running latest iTunes.

    Cheers,
    mike

    Hrmm yes I can't find anything with MemVendorID either. Interesting. Wonder where we could pull that from.

    ATI Radeon X1600 in the 20" white iMac is also ATI (0x1002) for vendor. Doesn't sound like it's the same as MemVendorID.

    No freezing besides some incompatibilities with applications in Leopard. Programs quit unexpectedly. Of course it happened in Tiger too with some old programs.

    Wow, congrats on that not working. :D

    ioreg -l (lowercase L) | grep ATY works.

    Code:
    ioreg -l | grep ATY | grep Mem
        | |   |     |   "ATY,MemVendorID" = <0100>
        | |   |     |   "ATY,MemRevisionID" = <0900>
    

    So:
    MemVendorID = 0100
    MemRevisionID = 0900


    Have had had NO lockups to date with Tiger with any of the updates sans 1.2.1 (since I'm in Leopard now), and no lockups in Leopard with 1.3

    I have had some freezing, even since update 1.2.1.
    I also get white speckles on black backgrounds when moving other windows around.
    Also have had white speckles and lockups in bootcamp when running 3D games but sometimes after a reboot it is fine

    MemVendorID = 0600
    MemRevisionID = 0100

    Mine freezes except using Tiger with Software Update 1.0.

    Code:
        | |   |     |   "ATY,MemRevisionID" = <0100>
        | |   |     |   "ATY,MemVendorID" = <0600>

    And your iMac does what? Locks up? None? Occasional? BBQ?

    Is it just me or does MemVendorID" = <0600> look like the problem child?

    Who was the one with two machines 10 serial #'s apart -- one freezing the other not.

    Would be more telling if that was two different VRAM memory IDs...

    Def looks that way, I have this as well:

    | | | | "ATY,MemVendorID" = <0600>
    | | | | "ATY,MemRevisionID" = <0100>

    Looks like I'm def taking it in for replacement.

    20" 2.4ghz 2Gb Leopard. Freezes very occasionally (A lot more in Tiger). UT2004 being the main trigger. General finder/screen saver/dock stuff is fine.

    MemVendorID = 0100
    MemRevisionID = 0900
