NVIDIA is working on drivers to support Optimus on Linux
Nvidia engineers are already working to bring Linux support optimus technology, one that allows the automatic exchange from an integrated graphics solution to a discrete higher performance, allowing a laptop to save battery life by resorting to lower performance gpu when running everyday tasks that do not require too much processing power.
Because drivers are being developed (drivers) for Linux right now, and while still at a very early stage of the process, things are serious, but not promised a release date for this tool available to mass level.
Recall that the development of NVIDIA graphics drivers in Linux is done through an unpopular method: the code is not open and the company takes care of all releases for the platform unilaterally, something that does not put happy to Linus Torvalds , who gave him some insults to the company by hindering access to that software. Even NVIDIA lost a multimillion dollar contract with China because of that. Sew them.controller, driver, drivers, gpu, graphics, Linux, Nvidia, nvidia optimus, optimus, switchable graphics
