Default Re: Optimus support for Linux

At this point - yes.
But... no one ordered manufacturer to not include hardware mixer in between Intel and nVidia and connect nVidia as coprocessor only, for cost cutting... no one.
And no one ordered them to invent so strange and genuine ways to manage this hardware with software.
