    I have a 2012 retina pro and have been getting kernel panic issues since I went away last week.
    It seems like its the GPU issue that I've read about in many searches but I guess I dont know for sure? I got an apple store appointment for this weekend, and somehow got my laptop limping along this afternoon without any monitors plugged in or running many programs, got my time machine backup done. Is there anything I should be doing before my appointment?
    My logic board was replaced back in nov 2012 after I had headphone port issues. This is the error report below:

    Nothing left to do except show them the kernel panic report and describe the problem to them. Being able to recreate it would help, but I think they should have everything they need with that report.

    Bummer too, because I think the free fix program ended Dec 31st. Might be able to get them to make an exception. Would depend a lot on the person that helps you, though.

    thanks yeah I saw that it ended. I saw some other stuff that it was only for 3 years or something though, and since mine was bought in august of 2012 Im not so sure they would fix it with that program anyway. But I certainly am going to try, hope I get a good person :) Sucks becuase Im on the fence about replacing it anyway, but for $300 its probably worth getting fixed just so I can get more resale value for this machine anyway :(

    Try with gfxcardstatus to use only the integrated gpu. Did you game on it often?
    Do you have nvidia drivers installed ?

    May 13, 2011
    no, no gaming, but I do run two external monitors on it as well.
    I'm not sure, I did a fresh install of macOS sierra this fall, and I didn't install any additional drivers? So I dunno.
    I'll try gfxcardstatus, I saw that mentioned elsewhere but wasnt sure if it was worth it

    I tried gfxcardstatus but every time I select integrated it just switches back to discrete :(

    and it crashed again :( Basically only using chrome at the moment, the website had some graphics, not sure if it was flash or what, but it crashed after that

    It's a tricky. Don't open anything that will use discrete gpu. Then choose "use only discrete" option and then quick choose "use integrated only" option. On el capitan is easier to switch :). Hope it works.

    Did you ever resolve this? I'm having the exact same issue.

    This falls under the repair program. Take it in.

    I regularly had GPU-panic crashes with my mid-2012 MacBook Pro since I installed OS Sierra and it was getting even worser when I moved to High Sierra. Even rebooting was a horror: black screen, repeated crashing during boot process. Finally, I appointed the problem to overheating of the CPU and the logic board around. I removed the heatsink (thermal pipe), cleaned it and renewed the thermal paste for CPU and GPU. I also changed fan control (Macs Fan Control Ap..) to GPU PECI sensor and disabled Turbo Boost when booting (Turbo Boost Switcher App). Eventually, my MB pro is running without any crash since then.

    Hey Peter-G. Thanks for the info. I have also had a sneaking suspicion that the problem is heat related, because if I let the mac cool it usually boots again. I am not as techy as you - could you please explain what you mean about fan control, and turbo boost. I get the heatsink thing - I'm on that.

    many thanks
