Razer Blade Nvidia Optimus 435XX external monitor not working


i installed fresh the manjaro preview and the nvidia 435XX driver. After that i changed the xorg.conf
because the nvidia display output only worked. I need it to change to the following config so i could use my Laptop-Screen :

Section "ServerLayout"
  Identifier "layout"
  Option "AllowNVIDIAGPUScreens"
  Screen 0 "iGPU"

Section "Device"
  Identifier "iGPU"
  Driver "intel"
#  BusID "PCI:0:2:0"
  Option "TearFree" "true"
  Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
  Option "DRI" "3"

Section "DRI"
    Group "video"
    Mode 0666

Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "Enable"
    Option "RENDER" "Enable"

Section "Screen"
  Identifier "iGPU"
  Device "iGPU"

Section "Device"
  Identifier "nvidia"
  Driver "nvidia"
#  BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

I got this config from the thread

Now the Intel GPU is working but the nvidia output doent work anymore. But in the Nvidia X Server Settings it recognized the Display. It is also logged in the xorg.0.log

If anything is missing pls let me know.


do you get the same behavior using the modesetting driver?, the intel driver works for the laptop screen but im not sure if it has the same functionality as modesetting since all this is new.

Hi @Keyjin,

On the Razer Blade laptops the HDMI port is connected to the NVIDIA card, so you can't use it as REVERSE PRIME not working.

If you have a old Razer (your processor is not i7-9xxx), the Thunderbolt port is connected to the Intel graphic, so it will work. I purchased this adapter on Amazon and it works perfectly.

Please note that if you intend to play, on your external monitor, you will have a lot of tearing. I didn't find any solution yet (with both modesetting & intel drivers).
