NEW MacBook Pro blurred screen: Graphics Card Compatibility Issue
What comes first for Apple’s most gorgeous new arrival in this year is NEW MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.
Performance enhancements, configuration upgrade, and a new interactive mode comes with Touch Bar…all of these are selling point of NEW MacBook Pro extremely attractive for “hands-chopping people”. It is believed that quite a few users have availed themselves of the hot two biggest shopping festivals i.e. “Black Friday” and “1111 Shopping Carnival” to “brandish a knife”.
Users’ feedbacks from 9to5Mac.com say that NEW MBP sometimes has weird blurred screen problems like transparent windows etc. At the very beginning, windows become transparent in small parts, and then some parts totally disappear into the desktop.
Some users remark that their screen problem is more severe: it occurs scattered like being “hacked” with all sorts of blending black lines and color lumps. And MacBook Pro crashes beyond repair after that.
In view of this problem, some say it’s probably related to the graphics card compatibility. But we can find that infected MacBook Pro involves both dedicated graphics card ones and integrated graphics ones.
In this regard, the cause for blurred screen is not yet clear now.
Concerning “which Apps trigger blurred screen”, most users have it on using Adobe soft wares such as Adobe Media Encoder and Premiere Pro, while some have it on using iCloud photo. Still Adobe Media Encoder is present in the largest amounts among all conditions.
