As nifty as the new 2016 15-inch MacBook Pro might be, there might be some video-related bugs to hunt down.

A number of posts have highlighted video-related issues, including flickering screens, have been reported. The issues have also included changes in the shade of colors alongside the considerable screen flicker.

One post offered the following description:

“I’ve had my new MacBook Pro for about a week now, already the screen has started flickering. Today the whole screen became all pixelated and glitchy to the point that I couldn’t see the mouse cursor moving. I reset the MacBook and now it’s still flickering.”

Take a gander at the video and see what you make of it:

Subsequent posters suggest this might be an overheating issue (which it isn’t, according to the original poster), and furthermore that the Radeon Pro 460 GPU has the “most issues” in terms of these video glitches.

Others have stated that it doesn’t matter which GPU the MacBook Pro happens to be running at the time, as the issue presents itself either way, while others have cited that Adobe’s programs might be bringing the issue forth to some extent.

If you’ve seen this issue on your new 15-inch MacBook Pro iron, please let us know.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
