Laptop with working (QE/CI) discreet GPU

27 March 2013 - 02:17 PM

Are there any current Laptops with QE/CI accelerated discreet (AMD or Nvidia) GPUs?

Lenovo Y480 (Got ML installed)

19 January 2013 - 03:25 AM

Hello All:
I have a Lenovo Y480 bought in Nov 2012:
I7 (Sorry I don't know the model)
Intel 4000+Nvidia 630M
Dell wireless (bought from ebay)
Intel Gigabit ethernet
Bluetooth dongle

I was able to install Mountain Lion and the update to 8.2 went fine.
The only things not working:
No QE/Ci for the Intel GPU:

3] Bus: Built-In

3] VRAM (Total): 64 MB of Shared System Memory

3] Device ID: 0x0166

3] Revision ID: 0x0009

The builtin Ethernet is not working.

Battery is not recognized.

I have a dual boot with Linux (Manjaro Linux an Arch Linux derivative) using UEFI and GUID and ML. I am not able to get Chamelon to install as the default bootloader or to get grub2 to boot ML. I have to use the USB installer.

I installed using the iaktos ML.
