Omg Skype and twitter want to use amd radeon6750.Is there any way to use only intel hd 3000?thanks
Calm down, and get gfxCardStatus.
I've seen this program mentioned a lot what are the advantages of being able to control what card is being used
When your doing things that aren't graphic intense, using the GPU daughtercard just drains unnecessary battery life. Where if you use the built in GPU chipset on the motherboard it saves battery life.
thanks for the info, so i have the AMD 6490M and the Intel HD 3000 which one should i be using for less graphic intensive things
Keep in mind some things don't work when you set it to integrated only, the most prominent being the Thunderbolt port and video calling on Skype.
Intel 3000 for less intensive.
video calling on skype works using hd 3000
not on mine it doesn't... what MBP do you have?
Buy a 13". It'll never touch your 6750, I promise you that
