RStudio 1.2 crash in macOS related to GPU acceleration

The latest versions of RStudio 1.2 branch crash constantly after some time. It appears it has something to do with the GPU acceleration.

  • While running RStudio 1.1.463, my computer uses the integrated Intel Iris Pro GPU without issues.
  • If I uncheck the options: "Use GPU blacklist" and "Use GPU driver bug workarounds" I can use RStudio 1.2.
  • With these two options checked, the application crash.

Interesting to note that unchecking the two GPU-related options makes a difference in your case, though. I'll copy this as a suggestion for other users.
