the sony sz series has had this for awhile. When you boot up the computer you can pick "speed" (dedicated) for more graphic power or staminia (shared) for better battery power.

"Running the discrete chip, the laptop was consuming approximately 25 watts of power. This usage dropped about 9 watts to 15-16 watts after switching to the discrete chip"

So Funy :)). Sony has been doing this ages, with Geforce 7300m and Intel GMA I forgot. Then AMD make big news with this power switch, Nvidia Follow, last but not least Intel.
