    MP 7,1 Is there an easy way to switch between GPUs?

    For context, I have a rx580 that came with the Mac Pro and a 6900XT I bought later. I could just use 6900XT but the problem is that it's producing so much heat. I live in a place where I don't have AC in my room so it gets too hot in the summer. I would like to use 6900XT only in certain...

Originally I was running an RX 580, then tried switching back to my EFI 7970, which helped a lot in terms of graphical glitches but still constantly crashes the driver. On macOS the rest of the system...

    MacBookPro4,1 neofetch GPU reporting, uh, confusion?

    I’m sure there’s probably a simple technical explanation behind this which I haven’t yet found on MR or elsewhere. Maybe the resident GPU experts on here — ahem, @Amethyst1 — might have some insight. Why would neofetch report a MacBookPro4,1’s GPU not as a GeForce 8600M GT, but as… an Intel HD...
