    Yep, still happening to me as well. 10.8.3 hasn't fixed anything. I must leave Graphics Switching off in the System Prefs or deal with the garbled text and images in Mail and Safari. This of course causes rapid battery drain.


    Come on  Apple. Enough already.

    I ended up taking my Mid 2010 MacPro to an Apple authorized service center. They found that my graphics card was bad. They replaced that, and that fixed the graphics issue I was having. That was a month ago, so my issue is definitely fix, and was hardware related.

    After spending some time with 10.8.3, I can say it has solved the graphic glitches in some situations but they persists in others. I haven't experienced any more glitches in Safari and Quick Look (which I use the most), but they persist in Mail (which I use the least):

    Same thing for me : no more glitches except in Mail.

    Yep same, safari is fine. Mail gives me small random glitches only once and a while. Much improved from where we were. Highlights that it most likely deffinetley isn't a hardware problem.

    Hi guys,


    same problems with my MacBook Pro 15'' Early 2011 i7 2.3 GHz Hi-Res Antiglare Display SSD Kingston HyperX 240GB 2*4 GB RAM.


    An Apple authorized service center already replaced 2 times my logic board but problems are still here. :-( It's clear it's a software problem.


    I have these issues with OS X 10.8.1, 10.8.2, 10.8.2 and Safari (6.0.4 too) and I attach to you some examples.







    I think it could be a good idea report the issues in the page linking the report to this discussion. Then, we only gotta hope!


    If you find a solution to this problem, please post it here. Thanx.

    Yup, I get glitches like this on a daily basis. It started happening after one of the updates - but I can't recall wich one. Almost always in mail, but occasionally in Safary too.
