    It is artifact. I had the same issue happening to me. It had to do with a bug with the graphic card switching.

    It hasn't happened to me since the latest update though.

    Also, a program called gfxcardstatus allows you to control which graphics card is currently in use. I found that it has helped with this issue as well. As the automatic graphic switching doesn't really switch when it's optimal.

    My MBP i5 15" was severely messing up the screen too, and when I tried to take a screen shot of it, the screenshot turned black. I shot it with grab and then turned it into a jpg with photoshop. I took it to Apple today and they thought the logic board was going. They ordered a new one and will get mine replaced next week.
