Apple In our coverage on the Apple press event earlier this week, where Steve Jobs introduced a revamp of all the company's notebooks (as well as a new Cinema Display), an error leaked into our story. We said that the new dual-GPU MacBook Pros used Hybrid SLI so you could use both graphics chips at the same time for better performance, but as it turns out, this isn't the case. This was my fault since Jobs didn't actually claim any Hybrid SLI being used. To detail the matter further, Apple has released a support document explaining the features of the dual GPU architecture.

point of 2 cards

I thought the point of having 2 cards in the new Mac Book Pros was for different battery life/performance ratios. If you needed more graphics processing or you need more battery life, you will choose the appropriate one. That is what I got from watching Steve Jobs keynote address in the Quicktime version on the Apple website.
