  1. I have a MBP2012 non-retina, the laptop has an integrated Intel HD 4000 GPU and a Nvidia Geforce GT 650M GPU. Novabench always shows that I'm using the integrated GPU, even with automatic GPU switching turned off. My question is: Is the machine using the integrated GPU when running Novabench, or is it using the dedicated GPU and just showing the integrated GPU in the spec? Edit: Ok, that question was probably a no-brainer: I compared the score and it was using the dedicated GPU, but is there a reason why you chose to display the integrated GPU?
  2. Is it possible that there is a problem with the hard disk speed test when 2 SSDs (RAID 0) are installed? Other benchmarking softwares are showing transfer speeds a lot higher than what Novabench got. Maybe because Novabench shows the transfer speed of smaller block size? I don't fully understand how these speeds are calculated, can you tell me the average speed of a 7200rpm HDD measured with Novabench?
