I purchased a 15-inch Macbook Pro from the Official Apple Store in March 2012. It's a late 2011 model.

 

A friend asked me about my graphics card. I wanted to check, but couldn't find that information on my computer.

I read this article:

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4152

 

Apparently:

Two   entries should appear under Video Card: "Intel HD Graphics 3000" and   "AMD Radeon HD 6750M" or "AMD Radeon 6770M".

 

Both of those cards sound familiar from when I purchased the Macbook Pro. However, I only have Intel HD Graphics 3000 listed.

 

I am running OS X Lion.

 

Did something happen to my graphics card? Did it go missing? Did I never get one in the first place? Or am I looking in the wrong location?

 

I'm no longer able to make free support calls, so I'd appreciate any help that I can get.

 

Thank you.

Welcome to the Apple Support Communities

 

Open  > About this Mac > More Info > System Report > Graphics and check if your ATI graphic appears

That's because it shows the graphic you're using now. When your computer needs more performance, it will switch automatically to your AMD card, or download gfxCardStatus and do this when you need > http://gfx.io
