MBP 2010 GPU Panic fix
MBP 2010 GPU Panic fix to MacBook Pro 15" mid 2010
My macrumors.com user is fabioroberto. I found a solution with MacBook Pro 6,2 GPU Panic problem. I discovered that this problem happens every time that g-state change between 2 to 0.
G-States go from 0 to 3, are related to the thresholds inside AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext. G-state 0 (maximum speed) and G-state 3 (lowest speed).
I solved the problem keeping it always at G-State 3 and 2 (medium speed).
About the performance after the fix? Exemple: Cinebench, default (G-state 0) i've about 15fps, with g-state 2 (medium speed): 10fps. Not bad.
