    I purchased a Retina Macbook in March with NVIDIA graphics card, when I select "About this Mac" under graphics it just states "Intel Iris Pro"

    Should it say NVIDIA 750?

    Sorry really stupid question I have just never noticed before !

    It will show the ACTIVE card there. If you go to System Report then Graphics/Displays you should see an entry for both.

    Your Mac has two GPUs. During light usage you will see something like this....

    If you have any more graphics demanding tasks running(or tasks specifically calling for the dGPU), then you will see something like this...

    And as the previous poster mentioned, you can find the information about all GPU's installed.. here...

    It is simply stating which card is in use at the moment.

    Mine says NVIDIA GeForce GT650M right now because I have an external monitor plugged in. On all Macs with a dedicated graphics card, that graphics card is the only one connected to the video out port.

    Thank you guys.

    I just had a horrible feeling that when I had my Macbook in for repair they had given me the wrong model back as I think they gave me a refurbed model back as there was some scratches that had dissapeared when I got it back that I was pretty happy with.

    Just being a tad paranoid!

    Depending on the repair they often replace panels whilst repairing them.
