    I got the new MacBook pro with touchbar 15 inch and the radeon 460 4gb.
    But when I click on about this Mac he shows me this graphic card:
    Intel HD Graphics 530 1536 MB

    I heard that this is normal and when the Mac is running on some adobe software or final cut he switches to the 460 radeon card but where can I see that just to be sure?

    Start any demanding app, like any Adobe app or Final Cut and then go to "About This Mac" again, and you'll see the Radeon name above the Intel card.

    Another way is to go to System Preferences -> Energy Saver and turn off "Automatic graphics switching". This will cause your Mac to only use the Radeon. Now go to "About This Mac" again (make sure to turn Automatic graphics switching back on when you're done, as it saves battery life)

    This is perfectly normal.
