Yeah, well, it's a general purpose video file encoder. The simplest and quickest among the bunch. It's sure to give any processor a good workout.

Apple's engineering at it's best. lol.

Ehh, I'm not interested in downloading the software and picking a DVD to rip just to prove a point. Not worth my time, frankly. I could easily do so but without a posting a video you could just claim I'm full of bologna anyway so what's the point. I'm not that invested here.

My original post was simple - I nor my wife who does heavy photo editing have ever experienced the problem discussed here.

So in short, the people experiencing freezes are..

"Using it wrong."

If you want to troll the thread, that's fine. I'm merely expressing MY own user experience. Which is to say I own one. It seems that everyone else that owns one also has no complaints. And as per usual, the only people whining about this are people that don't.

Sorry, but he's got a point. Your experiences may not be consistent enough.

To be fair, loads of stuff overheats, it's never brand specific. Sony laptops have done, Acers did back in the day, Apples do... hell, loads of custom PC's on OCN overheat.

and he has a point. 99% of the people whining about Apple in this thread don't own one.

The freezing is a driver issue. If it was overheating it would reboot. Enough trolling.

Sister is an avid Apple fan. Gotta know these things to protect her purchases. And yes, her i7-620M 2010 MBP can hit 100c on full load. Doesnt crash tho and is pretty stable thanks to laptop cooling pad. =P

If a dual core processor with GT330M scrapes the TJmax, what more would an i7-2630QM with a Radeon 6750 do with the same configuration?

It's like overclocking with a stock heatsink, expecting it to be all right when it's not.

Proper news thread:

[Ars] 2011 MacBookPros freezing when switching from integreated to discreet GPUs

Quote:
the issue would occur when CPU intensive operations coincided with running apps that cause Mac OS X's automatic graphics switching to move from Sandy Bridge's integrated Intel graphics to the discrete GPU. User Chullo then performed similar tests on all the 15" and 17" MacBook Pros on display at his local Apple Store. "[T]hey all failed—much to the surprise of the genius helping me," he wrote.

Apple appears to have flagged the issue in its internal support database, and it is said to be a "priority issue." While iFixit noted in its teardown of the 2011 15" MacBook Pro that "gobs" of poorly applied thermal paste on the CPUs and GPUs could cause problems down the road, Apple is convinced the issue is related to firmware or drivers instead. Engineering is reportedly working on a fix, and has suggested it could be fixed with a software update.
