Default Re: Hybrid Graphics & Linux

Ironhide (https://github.com/MrMEEE/ironhide/) or bumblebee (https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/Bumblebee) both work well for me for hybrid intel/nvidia graphics. You normally run the intel driver but can use the nvidia card for 3d-intensive apps like games. If you're running Ubuntu there are PPAs you can use. You can even configure them to turn off the nvidia card when it's not being used, which saves a significant amount of power.
