I have MacBook Pro (released at the second half of 2009) that has two graphics card.
I installed iSTAT Nano widget to monitor the system, please take a look at the attached screen shot.
My MBP is really becoming hot, especially the left side and the bottom piece.
Regularly, the "GPU Diode" temperature is reaching 70 !!
Is this normal for MBPs? or it is just mine?
I'm really anxious of possible potential problems.
I'm curious whether you found anything out about this.
I did some searching, and found a lot of forum posts reporting GPU diode temps in the 60-80 C range -- typically while gaming. However, I don't know if that means it's "normal" or whether it's simply a common issue. I found a lot of conjecture [citation needed ], but nothing conclusive.
