    hey guys, I have macbook retina 15 , I went to energy saving preferences and clicked better performance on the top, and it logged me out.. now I can only change between discrete and integrated using a check mark for "automatic graphics switching"

    but how do I get the "bettery battery life , higher performance" options back instead ?

    The graphics card switching has been automated and integrated into the OS(that is exactly what the "better battery life" and "higher performance" are). You no longer need to select a setting and log out and back in, everything is done on the fly.

    I may be wrong but that's how it's been since the early 2011 models, so nearly 2 years now. Simply let OS X choose the graphics card for you with automatic switching, and don't worry about it.
