[Laptop]Nvidia or future Vega ?

LeopardIf you would have actually look the post i linked , you would see solution here used is Nvidia Prime

Nvidia PRIME is broken. Or rather just under-implemented, in completely inept manner. Nvidia simply didn't implement routing discrete GPU over integrated one with PRIME.

You can can read Nvidia own documentation next time, instead of random forum posts and avoid spreading false claims:

http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/415.27/README/randr14.html

QuoteThe NVIDIA driver currently only supports the Source Output capability. It does not support render offload and cannot be used as an output sink.

So I'll repeat what I said - avoid this garbage.

It is NOT broken , it works as intended. I personally use it.

Again , they're working on Optimus to be like on Windows ; there won't be no need to select gpu via gui.

I don't see what is the problem , it works. Despite you call it broken.

"Working" you mean. Optimus exists since 2010: https://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2010/02/09/world-meet-optimus/

Nvidia surely were diligently working for 9 years on supporting it... And after 9 years it's not even working as it should. It's called garbage support. If you want to waste money on garbage - it's your own problem.

I would never buy a gaming laptop with Nvidia, Optimus is at best a hit or miss on Linux and I'm saying this as an Nvidia desktop GPU owner since 1999.
