Hi,

 

When I open folders and close them in launchpad I get some graphic glitches or artifacts on top of the screen. There is a screenshot for better understanding.

Details: It doesn't happen when I change the graphic card from Intel to Nvidia. It only happens on Intel. I have MBP retina display and installed Mountain Lion. I don't think it was before on Lion but not sure.

 

Thanks

MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    Hey, I'm experiencing the exact same problem. I don't have any other problems other than this, but of course I'm concerned that it may be a graphics card issue with the integrated card.

     

    Do you have any other problems?

     

    It's been nearly two weeks since you posted, so I'm wondering what's up on your end.

     

    Thanks.

    Yeah, that fixes it if its black and white or with no blur effect. I guess it's a launchpad issue with the integrated card. I guess I shouldn't be too concerned as my machine runs perfectly well other than for that.

     

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I have the same problem! I just recieved my Macbook yesterday with Mountain Lion pre-installed and the weird flickering at the top of launchpad seems to be the only issue. I'm suprised no one else has commented on this issue and I can't seem to find any additional information about it.

    I also have the same graphics glitches in my Macbook Pro Retina, and using a clean installation of Mountain Lion doesn't help at all. I'm just wondering does this happen only on Retina machine, or all Intel HD4000 machines, including 2012 air?

    Same thing right here. Don't know what to think of it since a lot of reports on various graphical issues with MBP-R.

     

    Though there's also been a lot of issues with Mountain Lion with graphics.

     

    It would be nice to know if someone on a different system is experiencing the same.

    Hey everyone. I went to the Apple Store yesterday when I was at the mall specifically to check if the display models had the same issue. Every single Retina MacBook Pro had this issue in launchpad when opening a folder. I'm sure that not every model there has a graphical issue. It seems to me as if its a firmware issue that can be fixed via an update in the future.

    Hi,

     

    Yeah I'm not too worried. Since the more widely spread flickering issue is apparently occurring also on '09, '10 and '11 MBP's.

     

    Hoping that all of these graphics issues are just ML or firmware issues. Obviously not the image retention on certain display panels though.

    This is just one of the problems that I have on my early 2011 MBP.

    Boot up screen. Same issue occurs in other apps as well.
