    Hi everyone. For those who own the rMBP and who happen to be using chrome regularly as the primary browser... have you been getting kernel panics? I'd just like to know how common this issue is. thnx.

    It's a known issue. Switch to the dGPU if you're using chrome.

    Yes. It has happened several times in the last few days.

    Does switching to dGPU mean disabling automatic graphics switching?

    Also, for those experiencing crashes while on chrome... have you gotten any crashes independent of using chrome? I'm wondering if it's only chrome related. It seems like it, but my new macbook also crashed once just waking from sleep w/ no applications opened (def not chrome).

    Thanks for the links and responses.


    Have you updated to ML yet? I'm curious if the new os resolves this issue? I just got my code from apple to redeem for a copy of os ML.
