    I usually find spraying my Internet Explorer first with 'Buggo Blastaway' ( from Ronco, they make great xmas prezzies ) usually cures it

    Just laughable...

    The other browsers have no problems on systems with hybrid-graphics, so the question is not about the systems, but about the software. Microsoft simply didn't check for compatibility and now blames the others.

    If I were working at Microsoft I would be hiding under a rock.

    I love how they made IE an OS exclusive. Do they think someone is going to upgrade to Win8 because it has IE10? Especially when Chrome, Firefox etc have no such OS limitations on updates.

    Just laughable...

    Nvidia and AMD manage to update their drivers for game releases but not everyday application releases?

    Don't modern graphics cards clock themselves down to save power nowadays anyway? My 560TI runs at 50MHz when it's only running the desktop, having optimus or similar technology seems redundant.

    @Deders its about power not speed. The intergrated graphics will use a lot less power than any dedicated graphics. And when using a battery every drop of power counts.
