    For those of us that have CC, I am wondering if anyone is out there with the new mbp that has been able to use it with just the iris pro graphics?

    gfxcardstatus is showing that the CC app requires the use of discrete graphics. Since this app is always running, I am not able to switch to iris pro for anything unless I quit the app, which I never do.

    Close all apps, then using gfxCardStatus, force the Iris Pro over the GT 750m. Open the CC apps you wish to use, the machine will keep the Iris Pro activated leaving the dGPU off.

    It won't allow this. It throws a warning when I test it using photoshop and/or aperture.

    Oddly, according to the energy pane in Activity Monitor, the CC app doesn't require discrete. But, photoshop and aperture do, which I find weird because what if I didn't have discrete graphics? does this mean that people without discrete graphics can't run these apps. It doesn't make sense.
