I found that a simple SMC reset resolved this problem so nevermind.

Thanks for this... you just made my day with this one line. Tried to figure out for days what went wrong with skyrim or the macbook pro, but a simple SMC reset helped.
For the record - since I had to google this SMC reset myself too - here is how I done it on the retina MBP:
1. Shutdown the laptop.
2. Make sure that the MagSafe power adapter connected.
3. Press (left) SHIFT+CONTROL+OPTION+POWER buttons once (at the same time) ...no need to hold them.
4. Press POWER button to turn your MBP on again.
Simple as that and worked like a charm for me.
Big up for Ardalaan.

I'm glad I could have helped! My Macbook was like this for 4 days, I was actually starting to become depressed, was so happy when I finally managed to fix it.

You are a gentleman and a scholar. I was re-running some benchmarks to compare my 15" Retina MacBook Pro to the new iMac. The numbers were so low, it was like I only had an integrated GPU like a Mac mini. Your SMC reset did the trick.

I bumped into the same problem a few days ago. I somehow fixed it, I also did a SMC reset among other things but I didn't realize the SMC reset fixed it.
Today it happened again and this is how I ended up reading your post
It is now fixed again thanx to you but the question is still why this happened, what action or software triggered this?
Thank you very much!!!

This problem started for me after the most recent EFI Update 2.0. Others are reporting problems from this update as well and I read that Apple has pulled the update from their servers.
