mbpsmoke1Last week the Inquirer asserted that NVIDIA had knowingly put faulty moble GPUs into the new MacBook Pros — a serious allegation. The 9600M the Inquirer’s well-informed friends examined had the same high-lead solder that failed in so many other laptops. NVIDIA hit back today, saying that although they had promised a “new materials set,” what they meant was that the solder would be better, if not a different compound.

So the new solder bumps are high-lead but are just “more robust” and hopefully won’t fail quite so easily. Well, we will soon find out as MBPs begin to drop like flies… or not.
