    I have been using my Macbook Pro Retina 15" since it were released and all have been fine.
    Due to i noticed some burn in my screen when switching to ex a light background i got the screen replaced by Apple.

    However almost ever since the latest upgrade to Mac Osx i have been seeing some strange pixels messing up the screen, quite often this happens if I work in Photoshop and then switches to another window or app for some time and then returns. (Please see attached photo..).
    This also happens inside the browser as well.

    Is there anyone who know if this might be just a software glitch or if it might be time to visit Apple store again?

    That appears be a GPU problem. If you can, take it back to Apple and have the logicboard replaced.

    Ah crap.. I imagine that could be the problem since it happens all the time and not just one.
