The graphic card on your logic board seems to be faulty. Call Apple, give them your MBP serial number et they'll tell you if your unit may be repaired free of charge via their special repair program for the Nvidia graphic cards issues.

You are correct. Took it to the Apple store genius bar and they had a special diagnostic that confirmed it was a model that was covered (in or out of warranty) by nVidia. Should received it back this week with a "Rev 2" motherboard that shouldn't exhibit the defect.

Thanks.
