Coming of age for a new Pro is when its owner finally gives up and goes into Energy Saver prefs to turn off "Automatic Graphics Switching"

What kinda issues are you running into with the auto switcher?

@viciousviscosity On the old MBP, I'd get full-screen flickering on battery.

On the new, there were some weird red dots on the border of my Firefox window, and some full-screen video would go all Max Headroom on me and flash green artifacts. It was… unsettling, to say the least.

@zigg Oh, they renamed "80s mode" to "Automatic Graphics Switching"…

That's so strange…

@viciousviscosity I really did think one clearly VHS-sourced video I was watching was to blame at first 😆
