    Have done a quick search but couldn't find the answer, so any help is appreciated.

    I have a 2011 MBP with a 1Gb ATI 6750 graphics card

    When I use Parallels with windows 8 I don't see an option to make it use one particular graphics card, is this an option somewhere? When I run the windows score, the graphics score is quite low and I am just wondering if it is using the intel 3000 card and not the ATI card.

    Anyone know how to check please?
