Widespread problem with NVIDIA GPUs

The dead display problem I had with my MacBook Pro last month seems to be widespread. However it looks like it isn’t limited to Macs. According to Engadget, “significant quantities” of NVIDIA’s laptop GPUs have been failing at “higher than normal rates”. Laptop makers have apparently already been given an updated GPU driver which kicks in fans sooner to reduce “thermal stress” on the GPU (I notice that the fan on my MBP seems to run more often since the motherboard was replaced).
