About the MacBook retina; which has both integrated and dedicated Gpu's-
Can they both be running at the same time for certain tasks, applications or games? Multiple monitor support?
Considering the new retina, with such a great integrated gpu, and an even better dedicated 750m, it'd be amazing to have a portable device the utilises both in some way.

I remember seeing some sort of software that lets the integrated gpu take some of the load off the dedicated gpu, increasing fps overall (something with v-sync, can try find it)
But was for PC desktops..
Something similar for mac?
