Angry Re: Linux drivers for GE Force 500M Series (GT 540M in particular)

My new shiny Asus N53S just arrived and Ubuntu is installed, but no restricted driver found.
So I ended up in this thread.

- I understand my laptop has something todo with Optimus.

- I understand from what I read that Optimus a technology to switch between two GPUs , a fancy discrete GPU and the low-power integrated one.

- Ok, Optimus is not supported for Linux, but is there no driver for the fancy discrete GPU on Linux/Ubuntu ??

- I don't care about switching between the GPUs but I want to keep on working on the powerful GPU ??

Is this laptop really worthless for me now ??
