Last summer it emerged that a large number of NVIDIA GPUs were failing due to thermal issues. Most OEMs, after a little persuasion, handled the issue in a civil and dignified manner. However it's taken Sony over a year to admit that some of its notebooks were affected.
It seems that a "small percentage" on notebooks from the FZ, AR, C, LM and LT model lines are affected. Sony's solution is to offer everyone a 4 year warranty to cover this issue.
This doesn't really help people who have seen their notebooks die because of this issue already and who have bought a new one, and the solution comes very late in the day, stirring up memories that NVIDIA would rather remain forgotten.
Like I said in an earlier post, I've lost faith in Sony to deliver a professional-grade product. This latest development just confirms what I already knew.
