Hey folks, I'm new to this forum, so thanks for your patience with my ignorance. I've been experiencing abnormal shutdowns of my MBPr (mid-2012) whilst using Google Maps. Usually (but not always) the fan would go loud and then black screen. This was mostly on the Earth mode but more recently it happened with maps, too. I tried re-setting PRAM, SCM, etc., but nothing seems to have worked. I wanted to do some tests and thus discovered Novabench. During the test, when colour visualisations appeared (I don't know how this part of the test this is called), the Mac would crash—every single time. Any thoughts? Btw, attached is part of a screenshot which captures the last second of the test at which point the computer shut down. Many thanks, Pete P.S. My Mac was serviced three months ago because of the well-known video issue this line-up is having: https://www.apple.com/uk/support/macbookpro-videoissues/. Seems odd the problem would return?
So I tried like anything to make it use as much power as i could but when the bench starts for the gpu it starts with 2fps an then goes to 1200fps. The score is low and after this watching in HWMonitor the most GPU could go in the test was 56%. How can I make it to use more in the bench?
