Hi, I have a macbook pro with 2 graphic cards, an Intel HD graphics 3000 and a AMD Radeon HD 6750, I want to know which one am I using by default, and how can I get the best performance for use in graphics software, like photoshop cs5. Thanks


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

Your system will automatically switch between the integrated GPU (HD 3000) or the AMD video card (more powerful) depending on the application you are using.  There is an excellent application (free) called gfxCardStatus.  This will put a little icon in your menubar showing you which card is in use.  It will also allow you to lock in either if you choose to do so: http://codykrieger.com/gfxCardStatus
