No, Optimus is not about switching GPUs. It's about having the integrated GPU being on all the time handling the easy tasks, and the discrete GPU activating itself only for heavy duty apps while the integrated GPU still runs
Some notebooks, in addition to Optimus
, provide a hardware mux to switch to the discrete card. They're usually high-end (read: expensive) models though.
