    I have a question concerning the graphics in a mid 2012 MacBook Pro.
    This MacBook Pro has two graphic cards:
    - Intel HD 4000 with 1GB vram
    - GeForce GT 650M with 512MB

    The Intel HD has more ram than the GeForco, so will the Intel HD be better for some tasks?
    ​Or is this just a stupid statement?

    No. The 650M has 512mb of dedicated gddr5 (fast) and then it starts using the system ram (slower). The intel GPU goes straight to the system ram.
