True benefits of Switchable Graphics

Last response: in Graphics & Displays

Is there any other benefits to switchable graphics other than the energy saving aspect? Having the discrete card on all the time vs. dynamic switching of graphics due to application use doesn't really matter for me because I have my laptop plugged in all the time. I was wondering if maybe like my discrete card would wear out faster if it was used all the time, but surely even if that was the case it would still be by a narrow margin right?

Other than if one graphics core dies, at least you have the other.
