Will Boot Camp use 9600M GT or 9400M?

    I have a 15.4" MBP with dual graphics. I've only ever had the 9400M set in Mac OS, but when I look at dxdiag in Boot Camp Windows 7 I see a 9600M GT. Can this be toggled in Windows, or is it just forced to the better graphics?

    i installed windows on my bootcamp partition last night and my battery life was quite low so i am assuming that windows runs on the 9600

    It is the 9600 only, you do not have a choice in Windows

    Nigameash: Well that's a horrible way to try to answer the question.

    Windows under BootCamp will only ever use the 9600 GT.

    Next time, Google it first. (Seriously. Use "macbook pro boot camp 9600 GT or 9400M" and hit I'm feeling Lucky. That's what I did.)

    well my mbp is less than 5 weeks old so a low battery life is an indication of the 9600 card being used! whats wrong with that? :eek:
