The application is a simple software that remains resident in the menu bar, and has Growl notifications to inform us when the operating system makes such a change. As you know, Mac OS X manages the use of one or another graphics card to better manage the power of the computer, using the integrated one when we do not need too much power and changing to the dedicated one when we require more processing capacity.

From the gfxCardStatus menu itself, we can also easily switch between one or the other. This way we can use the one we want without waiting for Mac OS X to decide to switch from one to the other. The application, according to its own website, has a minimal footprint on the use of the system’s RAM memory, which we will check ( and which we should do whenever we decide to host a new application in our menu bar ):

As you can see, gfxCardStatus uses minimal consumption, so we can use it without fear of slowing down our system. In addition, the loading of the application is extremely fast. The program is completely free, updates automatically and is only compatible with the new MacBooks Pro with Intel i X processors, that is, the latest revision that Apple launched on the market a few weeks ago.
