Google已公開表示Chrome瀏覽器為2012年新款MacBook Air當機原因。

Apple macbook air

如果您發現新買的2012年新款MacBook Air當機連連,就算換了新機問題還是沒有解決的話,恭喜!因為問題已經被找出來了。

在前幾天Gizmodo大肆報導了Google Chrome瀏覽器可能就是導致新款MacBook Air當機的元兇之後,現在Google官方發言人已經正式對此事做出了回應:

“We have identified a leak of graphics resources in the Chrome browser related to the drawing of plugins on Mac OS X. Work is proceeding to find and fix the root cause of the leak.

The resource leak is causing a kernel panic on Mac hardware containing the Intel HD 4000 graphics chip (e.g. the new Macbook Airs). Radar bug number 11762608 has been filed with Apple regarding the kernel panics, since it should not be possible for an application to trigger such behavior.

While the root cause of the leak is being fixed, we are temporarily disabling some of Chrome’s GPU acceleration features on the affected hardware via an auto-updated release that went out this afternoon (Thursday June 28). We anticipate further fixes in the coming days which will re-enable many or all of these features on this hardware."

我們已經確認在Mac OS X上與Chrome瀏覽器相關的繪圖外掛存有繪圖資源洩漏的問題。我們已正在尋找以及修復造成此問題的原因。

資源洩漏會導致內建Intel HD 4000繪圖晶片的Mac硬體(例如新款MacBook Air)發生系統核心崩潰。由於軟體理應不會觸發此種行為,因此與系統核心崩潰的錯誤代碼11762608也已經被提交給Apple。
