Ableton uses discrete GPU on MBP 2019

I had temperature issues with my MBP, it usually got to nearly 70 C. Turned out Activity Monitor shows that Ableton uses discrete GPU and is on top in energy consumption list.

There's a Beta out that uses the Metal framework for rendering, maybe that won't tax the gpu that much.
