Re: Retina Macbook Pro (late 2013) -- Iris Pro or Iris Pro + Nvidia GT750M (mostly for Lightroom)

The computer with GT750 has actually both, the Iris Pro and GT750. The GT750 uses more power, but it is only used if one of the running applications require high performance GPU. Current version of LR does not require it. If you only run apps that do not require high perf. GPU, the Iris Pro is used and GT750 is switched off.

With current version of LR, there is no advantage of having the GT750, but future versions of LR may add GPU acceleration and theoretically might benefit from it.
