    Hi all,

    I just got a new MBP i7, and whenever the graphics switch from the Nvidia 330m chip to the Intel chip, the screen "flickers" black for a short moment before reappearing.

    Can anyone with a new MBP comment on this behavior? It doesn't happen on the switch from Intel->Nvidia, just the other way around.

    Thanks in advance!

    If I quit the last app using the nVidia from the app switcher using Cmd+Q it almost ALWAYS makes the switcher distort graphically for a split second...

    I think this is the major focus of the Graphics driver fixes that are supposed to be in 10.6.4.
