Yes. We are back! After a true blue monday our emergency system is fully up an running.
The AMD Radeon 6970M issue on late 2011 27″ iMacs
After pushing our mainframe beyond what’s possible the AMD Radeon 6970M gfx card died, otherwise our first video interview with the lovely Jamaica Suk would be already online. Also the windows laptop lined up in failing mode, but that’s not unusual like it’s for the Mac. It turns out, that the AMD Radeon 6970M card which came with the late 2011 27″ iMac was faulty from the beginning. But lucky like we are, the replacement program lasting 4 years is already one year off.
Thanks to target disk mode via thunderbolt we had access to the hard drive: the video project files with more than 20GB were not backed up by our system before the crash. But first you need the thunderbolt cable. 35 bucks for 0,5m! Now you understand why Apple is filthy rich …
But we used the offtime to finish the second video for Novation, and we are again super thrilled to put it out into the video orbit. Coming really, really soon ( if our emergency system won’t die as well ).
Here is a sneak peek shot, and there is a rumour that you may find more footage in our social media profiles like Instagram or Twitter.
