    iMac GPU Replacement in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY

    Your iMac’s graphics processing unit (GPU) is a big deal. With features like 8GB of memory and 256GB-512GB of storage, it’s the main component in your computer that tells graphic images where to store themselves and how to show up on your screen. 

    Pretty important right? Especially given the trend toward all kinds of images all over computers and all over the internet. It’s getting increasingly hard to navigate the digital world without proper image rendering. Agreed?

    So, what happens when the GPU fails? A number of things actually. You could start seeing images looking weirder and weirder. Strange fan noises. Or worst case? The blue screen of death.

    If this is happening to you, don’t panic. The good news is that you’re definitely in the right place to get the problem diagnosed and fixed right away. We want you to get back to being you as soon as possible.
