    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.

    Good to know. I'll keep an eye on it as updates come along. Thanks!
