Re: Optimus support for Linux
In my opinion, having two graphic cards in one laptop is completely useless. I really doubt that you would save any relevant amount of power, as long as the main graphics chip has a good power management which underclocks/-volts properly when being idle (as most recent Nvidia chips do pretty well).
So why having another crappy intel chip, which just wastes valuable battery time?
I fully understand Nvidia's decision not to support Optimus on Linux as it is just another marketing gag to confuse (dumb) windows users.
