    Hi all,

    So I'm using my new MacBook Pro 17" (Early 2011), and as you can see in the attachment, it's showing in Lion as using "Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB graphics". This used to only show the bigger card, the "AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1024MB graphics".

    Is this just because the bigger card isn't in use due to low demand? Or has my card already fried?? :confused:

    It does always show the card which is currently in use. Open iPhoto or iMovie and then check again.
