Default Re: Mac Pro (Late 2013) GPU Issues

Mine is a 6 core and I am still occasionally facing the beachball freezing issue .... Worse ... the Apple Certified dealer here won't ever replace mine because he can't replicate the issue ....

I feel for ya, buddy! For me what helped was that it started getting worse. Took some time, but eventually the dealer was able to replicate the issue.

Although I couldn't make the Mac crash, one thing I found would often found would work was to leave the computer on but putting the display to sleep via the Mac (not just turning off the display). If I left it for a couple of hours, often I'd come back to a frozen computer. Not always, but quite often.

Iíve had the same issue with my 4 core as others are reporting. It worked perfectly for 9 months initially before getter by the freezes and the gpu restart and window server errors in the log


When I initially took it back they ordered the 2 graphics cards, interconnect board and ribbon cables. Someone in Apple support blocked the ordering of these parts and only the cables were replaced. This fixed it for a few months.

Iíve since been back 2 times to the Apple store. First time they said it was debris causing the crashes but that didnít fix it. Second time they replaced graphics card b and the cables again. On the day I bring it home it crashes again.

Iím wondering if itís worth calling Apple support even though Iím well out of warranty.

Well it was good they could replicate the crash but you got it fixed at least ?
