Another Report on Mac Radeon 2600 XT Exchange Program (w/Card Infant Failure):
(Latest reader report on the program first mentioned in Feb 21st news page - here's the Apple doc on the program.)

"ATI 2600 Replacement Program
Apple replaced my bad ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT video card on May 7, 2011 (no video). I was given a refurbished (by Apple) exact same model card within the same serial number groups cited by the replacement program as eligible for replacement. It stopped working on June 6th (no video).
(June 7th) Apple stepped up today: since the issue recurred, they gave me the option of either another replacement ATI 2600, an upgraded card, or bring the Mac Pro in and let them test and determine the problem/solution.
I'm going with the upgraded card plus their installation and testing, all gratis. Right on, Apple.

Some previous reports including another reader with a replacement card infant failure are in the Feb 23rd archives. A report on a refund is in the March 1st archives.
