Thank you for sharing your opinion on your MBP 15" to identify the issue of the Graphic Card 2016.

455 here, no issues. What do the unrecoverable GPU reset loops look like? Failure to boot up or log in? Is this a situation where disabling FileVault does not help? Not that disabling FileVault is a good workaround, IMO.

2.9GHz/460 here.. and getting unrecoverable GPU reset loops on the Radeon.
Do you have iCloud Photo Library activated? For me the panics occur when the upload process runs and "ImageConversionService" maxes out the GPU

They told me to take it to an Apple Store, but no reservations are available until next week...

Might have something to do with the recent iPhone repair program launches.

If the Apple Store is reasonably close by, its worth just stopping in to see if they can fit you in. I have had success with going in and getting a spot even though reservations were full for the next several days. They might feel sorry for you since you are having trouble with a new machine.

With respect to the OP, I wish I could vote in the poll, but sadly, my computer won't be here until mid December :(

460 here, had some very minor artifacts in some videos and images. Got a replacement (for another reason) and haven't noticed it on here. Software or hardware? Seems some units are unaffected so it could be hardware.

460 here, and I get weird black bars in google sheets. And sometimes a red bar in safari. And on boot up. I'm thinking it's driver related.

If you're getting replacements and they're unaffected I'd be willing to wager that AMD are putting out bad chips again.

Guys, are the AMD Radeon GPUs active when you get the glitches, and errors?

Because all of this can be related to... Intel iGPUs.

When I experienced it on my returned MBP I believe it was the iGPU. Probably has nothing to do with the AMD graphics.

Mac Pro tower users have been using the same Polaris graphics drivers with he desktop 460, 470 and 480 cards. I did it with a 470. We haven't noted any of these terrible glitches so it doesn't look like a driver issue.

Same for me. I exchanged for a new machine with the same 460 card and no issues so far!

This is very worrying as a result already at this stage: 1 MBP pro 460 out of 2 is defective! Wooaw
I start wondering if I will not cancel my order for my MBP pro 460.

But was it active, or system tried to launch it, and failed to do so? Because thats what can cause the glitches.

It had been active already for some time according to iStat Menus. A user in another thread isolated the issue that multiple people including myself are facing.

Ok,
I have this problem. All the .gpurestart and kernel panic logs in Console point to an interaction between "com.apple.photos.ImageConversionService" and the discrete video card.


My large Photos library is uploading in the background.
The Apple Support person hasn't heard of this problem.
