    I need help guys. My GPU in MacBook Pro died and now i need to buy AMD BGA IC Graphic Chipset 216-0810028 or AMD BGA IC Model number 216-0810005 but im not sure is it compatible with my MacBook Pro model which is:

    Chipset Model: AMD Radeon HD 6750M
    Type: GPU
    Bus: PCIe
    PCIe Lane Width: x8
    VRAM (Total): 512 MB
    Vendor: ATI (0x1002)
    Device ID: 0x6741
    Revision ID: 0x0000
    ROM Revision: 113-C0170L-573
    Automatic Graphics Switching: Supported
    gMux Version: 1.9.23
    EFI Driver Version: 01.00.573

    MacBook Pro late 2011 i7 2.2 Ghz
    Order MD318LL/A Model A1286 (EMC 2563*)

    You don't have what? The link I quoted is a special repair which has nothing to do with AppleCare or Warranty. You take an appointment with a Genius at an Apple Store and you show them your issue, the run a diagnostic tool they have to make it fail. In case of failure, they take it in for repair for free and you have it back within 10 days with a new logic board.

    This repair programme expires the 31st of December 2016. So don't wait, just go.

    There's no problem as this doesn't void anything related to the dGPU failure. I even sent mine with NO HDD/SSD and NO RAM and it came back working fine as soon as I've put back my SSD/RAM.

    The repair is reliable in the sense where it took years for the issue to show with lots of people. You should not stress tests it because after Dec 31st, you're by yourself. And the issue won't appear before a year or two. My repair has been good so far, but I'm going to get my new Macbook Pro and sell this one while it's working :D.

    Yes, you have 90 days. However, the problem will happen again in 1-3 years. The 90 days will just show you they've done the work correctly, not that it's not defective anymore (they put again the same chip, the logic board is a bit different though).

    I'm glad I could help and share my experience on this one. Good luck, and let us know when it's sorted!

    Apple store accepted mac for graphic problem,and im still waiting for phone call. I have been reading a little bit about this issue,and im not really confident that this replacement program will solve anything. From what i read on internet,they are using refurbished logic boards as replacements, which usualy fail withing weeks or months. Unfortunatly , there is no "new" boards, just repaired or reflowed on high temperatures,atleast from what i read on apple forums. In USA they have repair depots which repair boards,i dont know is it the same in europe.

    Reason for this is just to gain time until the extended period ends.

    I received laptop,and as i thought so. Logic board is refurbished. They put some black tape over serial number which clearly belonged to someone else because its noticeable they worked on the are around GPU,because smd's are all yellow on the other side of the board which indicate they heated that area. And now i have this artefacts when I'm booting into MacOS. S/N is the same but HW ID is different
