Hello everyone, thank you for taking the time to read this.
I have a laptop (Clevo NH70RZQ) with a second Nvidia GTX 1650 graphics card:
lspci | grep -E "VGA|3D"
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation UHD Graphics 630 (Mobile)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation TU117M [GeForce GTX 1650 Mobile / Max-Q]
MHWD installed this driver:
But 'glxinfo | grep -i vendor' gives this output:
server glx vendor string: SGI
client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
Vendor: Intel (0x8086)
It seems my Intel onboard card is still in use. How do I make sure my laptop uses just the nvidia card, and not the Intel card at all? Unfortunately I can't turn off the card in the BIOS
I know a lot has been written about optimus-prime, bumblebee, etc. but actually I'm not sure how to proceed now, and I hope someone can point me in the right direction. Thank you.
