A couple of years ago NVIDIA suffered from lots of faulty GPUs and now similar news hits the wire as Apple recalls select mid-2011 27-inch iMac computers. The model in question is the Sandy Bridge version that was sold between May 2011 and October 2012, Apple says that the AMD Radeon HD 6970M graphics cards, both the 1GB and 2GB models, in select versions of these iMacs could fail. Affected systems will get a graphics card replacement free of charge and if users had already replaced their graphics card at cost, the customer is said to be eligible for a refund. Details about the recall can be found at Apple.
Apple has determined that some AMD Radeon HD 6970M video cards used in 27-inch iMac computers with 3.1GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 or 3.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processors may fail, causing the computer’s display to appear distorted, white or blue with vertical lines, or to turn black. iMac computers with affected video cards were sold between May 2011 and October 2012.

Apple says that the issue is connected solely to 27-inch models with 3.1GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 or 3.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processors. AppleCare, Genius Bars, and Apple Authorized Resellers have been given a series of steps to verify if a customer’s iMac exhibits the graphics card issues.
