New MacBook Pro with Retina display

Post by Judge Tredd » Thu Jul 12, 2012 2:29 am

Hi all, I've just updated to the new MBPRD and it looks as if BZ is having issues with the Retina display. Just wondering if anyone else has seen this and if there is an update coming which will fix it?

Can you be more specific about the problem? Screenshot, or any other info?

It's a fairly expensive laptop so not many people have them.

My initial guess with no other evidence would be that it is a video driver issue. Apple is notorious for having poor video drivers when releasing new equipment.

Biggest problem is that the screen goes very dark as soon on startup. Resetting brightness under display settings fixes the issue, but only for the current session.

Sounds like a crappy graphics driver.

It would be very hard for us to do anything about it with out being duplicate the problem. It could be driver related. I believe that laptop is using 2 video chip-sets and the drivers may not be playing very nice with each other. I do know some mac users have better luck if they turn smoothing off.
