GPU Panic on Early 2013 Retina 15-inch Macbook Pro

I bought an early 2013 retina 15-inch mbp a while ago. Everything was fine until recently it starting to have gpu panic and blackscreens. Seems due to overheat on the Nvidia gpu but I can not be sure.

 

Please tell me what is going on and how do I fix it.

PS: my mbp's warranty is expired so is there any other way than send it to Apple? or is it worth the extra fee?

Hi,

 

Your MacBook Pro likely has a faulty discrete GPU. So many of this model have the issue that Apple created a repair program for them, but it expired Dec 31, 2016: https://www.apple.com/support/macbookpro-videoissues/. Try the following to see if it helps:

 

Install gfxCardStatus (https://gfx.io) and set it to "i" (integrated graphics only). It will allow your MBP to run on integrated graphics only, bypassing the discrete GPU which has the issues. This may allow your MBP to run normally, although it will have reduced graphics performance when performing demanding graphics tasks. The alternative is replacing the logic board, which is not cost effective on a machine that old, unless gfx does not resolve the issue and you really want to keep this MBP.

 

Also, Grant Bennet-Alder claims:

 

There is an acknowledged bug in the current version of Cody Kreiger's Open-Source gfxcardstatus, and the developer has confessed he does not have time to fix it right now.

 

There is a fork off the main build by steveschow available that seems to fix that problem for current versions of MacOS such as ElCapitan and Sierra. He provides a finished .app for direct download -- you do not have to compile anything.

 

https://github.com/steveschow/gfxCardStatus/releases

 

You'll have to decide if the integrated graphics work well enough for you. You'll also have to decide for yourself if it's worth a new logic board to fix the issue; the last post I saw on this said the repair was $800. You can buy a logic board and install it yourself if you're very handy; the logic board replacement is very difficult. Check out ifixit.com and/or powerbookmedic.com for logic board prices and availability and installation directions. Another option is to buy the logic board and have a repair shop (not Apple) do the repair; try to use an AASP. Either an independent shop or AASP is likely to be cheaper than Apple, however Apple's has a 90 day warranty, so make sure you get a warranty on yours.
