    I have a new MacBook Pro 15" early 2011 model with the Intel graphics and AMD graphics (1GB).

    When I load Bootcamp version of Windows, the Mac is always running the AMD discreet graphics. Annoyingly Apple is yet to supply the correct drivers that do graphics switching (very annoyed by this).

    When I load my Bootcamp partition via Parallels, which graphics does it use?
    If I use a virtual machine (instead of Windows in Bootcamp), which graphics does it use? Does it switch like it should?

    Many thanks.
