Calling all MacBook Pro 15" 2018 owners, particularly owners of the 2.6 GHz model. Would you be willing to test something on your 2018 MBP? (15”?). Install the latest Java JRE (https://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u192-b12/750e1c8617c5452694857ad95c3ee230/jre-8u192-macosx-x64.dmg). I see weird video artefacts every time when I do this:

Artefacts

The test needs to be performed without an external display attached as it appears to involve the discrete GPU.

I'm running OSX Mojave 10.14.2.

It turns out that the integrated GPU was defective.
