Discrete / High Performance GPU

Craig McKellar


Evening all,


Does anyone know if it's possible to run Receiver on OS X without engaging the discrete graphics card?  The Intel Iris should be perfectly capable of running a lower resolution Citrix display but when it runs it always engages the discrete AMD - when running on battery it has a big impact.

I have the same issue on a late 2016 MBP...the AMD high performance graphics card is required by RTMediaEngineSRV process related to Citrix Workspace (Version: (1906)) 


In less than two hours my battery dropped to 50%...officially it's supposed to last up to 10h.


Definitely the integrated Intel card should be able to cope with a citrix srceen and use far less power.
