Windows 8 on boot camp has no issues with window rendering or speed. The 650m is a very capable card, and the HD4000 should be able to handle a lot of what you throw at it. Also, switching graphics cards manually makes no difference. It's a lot of pixels, but if it cannot handle the simple resizing of a window (drops down to about 4FPS when I resize the notes window), then it's definitely a software problem.

Heck the 650M can even run Skyrim at ultra settings (@Full HD resolution with 8xAA) at 24 FPS according to notebookcheck. If you can manage to use more resources than that when simply resizing some windows at high res, you're doing something wrong.

What I expect is happening is, they pass everything through the CPU after rendering, which bottlenecks the graphics. I seriously hope they updated graphics performance in this build, otherwise I'm seriously considering selling my rMBP, and getting an ASUS or something.

Hi, vmachiel. Could you (or anyone else reading this) please explain what happens during those crashes when switching graphics cards? I mean, what do you see on your computer screen when such a crash happens? Is there any kind of message that appears on the screen?

Just for some fun - with Terminal of course.

Code:
sudo su -
Code:
cd /Library/Preferences/
Code:
mv com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.old
Code:
touch com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist
Code:
/usr/bin/defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist CatalogURL "https://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-mountainlionseed-mountainlion-lion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog.gz"
check software update still works

I just hope it will be released by tomorrow - on the other hand, Apple really seems to be working hard on this one so it could be worth the waiting....

You can go to Mission Control in Sysprefs and uncheck 'Group Windows by Application'

It's not exposť but it's the best I can come up with.

I've seen no changelog (anywhere) that mentions those being addressed.
Add to your list wake from sleep issues on the new iMacs...Only workaround is to use pmset in Terminal to prevent hibernation....It's known, and has been reported so lets hope they fix that...Apart from that, I don't have any real issue except Itunes but that's another story.

Hi there,

I use istat menus, and what i see when the graphic cards switch is one thread of one processor core gets fully used up for about 15 seconds and then the whole systems freezes. It mostly happens when I try to scroll through a web page really fast, or when I open a folder with 50+ files in it that the system tries to preview.

When I reboot and look in console, it always has the same lines in it regarding nvidea and opengl. When I turn off auto switching of graphic cards in system preferences, I don't have any crashes. When it is on, my system crashes every week or so.

can anyone tell yet if this fixes the slow boot down on macbook airs and macbook pros. Before Mountain Lion it would be like 2-3 seconds, now it takes like around 15 seconds. It should be like this.

I'm gonna guess a public release sometime this week or even today.

Probably Friday.

Anything is possible, but I read elsewhere that they ran into something that has held it up a bit longer.
