Dual graphics in MBP
I would have thought that when attached to an external display that the Iris graphics would power the internal and the Nvidia card would power the external display.


Both displays run off of the Nvidia, the Iris is shut down. Wtf

The dual graphics shit is beginning to irritate me with the new firefox. It switches fuckin' constantly.

Isn't the iGP wired directly to video out with the Nvidia going through the iGP? There has to be some way of forcing specific apps/programs to use a specific chip. The Nvidia driver on Windows allows that level of fine tuning, isn't there something similar like even just a third party app or command prompt/.plist edit or something?
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

I gave the new FF a shot. But its just a dog on OS X.
The longer you leave it open the laggier it gets. Battery life is atrocious if anything in the window wants to move, even just a little bit.

Went back to Chrome for work and Safari for personal and am enjoying the battery life.

The power control panel will force the laptop to use my NVidia processor by disabling graphics switching.

But I'd rather force it the other way.

Would this help? https://gfx.io/ it's not as advanced as being able to specify which GPU is used on a per app basis, but it might still be helpful.

It doesn't.
