Hi there! I’ve searched a couple things and i cannot get trough this, so i’m posting here hoping that someone can help me :)
I have a MSI GS65 Stealth 8SF with a RTX 2070 MAX-Q with Ubuntu 18.04.02 LTS, kernel 5.2.6-050206-generic, nvidia driver 430 (open source).
when i bought the PC i had some problems with battery drain, and i solved that issue switching to Nvidia profile on nvidia-settings (i was using Intel profile because it made sense for me that Intel was going to consume less power than Nvidia and because in my last PC i had to use Intel’s profile in order to increase battery duration). Since i switched to Nvidia profile PC was doing great, quiet, and battery lasted 3 to 4 hours.
Since a couple days ago i feel like i’m back to start: fans always spinning with noise, battery lasts less than 1 hour. In my way to diagnose the problem, i tried switching profiles to see if it changed anything. What i think is happening is that despite i select Nvidia profile in nvidia-settings, it never really uses it.
I think this because:
if i run
glxinfo|egrep “OpenGL vendor|OpenGL renderer*”
i always get this (in both profiles)
OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel® UHD Graphics 630 (Coffeelake 3x8 GT2)
if i check Nvidia Settings, despite Nvidia profile is selected, it shows me no options at all (and it showed a lot of options before (check attached screenshot)
if i run
Should i download driver 430.40 from https://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/149138/en-us?
Thanks in advance,
