Unsure whether to pick free or nonfree driver

I'm trying to install Manjaro, however I'm not sure whether to pick free or nonfree in the drivers options.

My specs are:
AMD® Ryzen™ 7 4800H Processor
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1660TI

Thanks in advance.

your cpu has a internal graphic plus the nvidia. this so called prime/optimus solution can cause a lot of work to get it run. please check for "amd nvidia" and "optimus" with the search function and the wiki. the nonfree driver will be the better choice.

nonfree is what you want to pick.

Optimus is for intel/nvidia only irrc. They'll have to use prime.


Support for AMD+NVIDIA hybrid in MHWD was pushed to 20.1-pre3 forward. Here is the merge request.
