    At the genius bar I was told it's good to restart my 2015 MBP 15" daily to clear the ram in the discrete graphics card. Is there any truth to this recommendation?

    Unless the drivers are poorly written, I doubt it is needed.

    Doesn't matter. It would be useless if it couldn't clear its own RAM when needed.

    None whatsoever. I have no idea where the Genius would come up with something like that.

    Honestly, I'd call and complain about inane BS like that being spouted by someone that is supposed to have technical know-how.

    Oh my.
    I think someone should stop shoveling for a second and get a whif of what they're hurling over the Genius Bar.
    That's some prize quality manure.
