gfxCardStatusOverview

gfxCardStatus is a free menu bar application that keeps track of which graphics card your MacBook Pro is using at any given time.

Features:

  • Simple, clean "i" and "n" icons that signify Intel HD Graphics, and NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M graphics, respectively.
  • Automatically updates when the GPU switches, in real time.
  • Dependent process list: see which applications are currently using the 330M, if it's the active GPU!
  • Growl support, so you know right when the GPU switches.
  • Tiny footprint doesn't sit in your menu bar and hog RAM or CPU cycles.
  • Automatic application updating checks for downloads and installs new versions of gfxCardStatus automatically!
