I just bought my new Macbook Pro Retina Today.

And already updated to the latest OS, but how do I switch to my NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M, I think I am using the Intel HD graphics right now.


I tried to google it already, but it seems that I have other options at my Energy option screen, as it only says 'Automatic detect Graphic option'. (I am Dutch so I tried to translate it)


Games like Runescape are laggy right now, any idea's on how to change?


Thank you in advance!

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

gfxCardStatus version 2.2.1 lets you manually change which gpu u want to use.

The MBP auto switches to use the discrete gpu when needed or when software is written to address it.
