mac default icongfxCardStatus For Mac Publisher's description

gfxCardStatus is a menu bar application that keeps track of which graphics card your unibody

gfxCardStatus is a menu bar application that keeps track of which graphics card your unibody, dual-GPU MacBook Pro is using at any given time, and allows you to switch between them on demand.

Simple, clean graphics and UI
Nobody likes dealing with bloat, so gfxCardStatus is super simple.

Updates in real time when the GPU switches
Polling? Psh! gfxCardStatus waits for OS X to tell it that the active GPU has changed.

Manually switch GPUs at will!
Want to save some battery life or decrease heat? Flip over to your integrated GPU and revel in the glory of your favorite new Mac app.

Localized in 11 languages. Whoa.
See a list of them here!

Growl support
Growl notifications will alert you to the fact that your active GPU has changed.

Dependent process list for discrete GPU
Wondering what applications are causing the automatic switch to your discrete GPU? Just pop open the gfxCardStatus menu!

Power source-based GPU switching
Want to save some battery life while on the go? Set gfxCardStatus to switch to your integrated GPU upon unplugging your power cord!

Automatic updating
gfxCardStatus uses Sparkle, so you're always running the latest and greatest version.
