I’m trying to switch to Linux on my laptop which has an RTX 3070 and Intel UHD graphics for 10th gen which I think they call GT2 graphics(?).
Ideally I want to use KDE as it’s what I’m used to so I’ve installed Kubuntu, at least for now just to test things out and make sure everything is working. However, I’ve got the NVidia proprietary drivers installed and my laptop seems to be stuck at a 40hz refresh rate. The displays configuration lets me choose 165hz but it doesn’t seem to change anything and tried changing it in xrandr too but it hasn’t done anything. I’ve also tried disabling v-sync in compositor settings and that hasn’t made a difference either.
I’ve tried setting the prime settings to use the NVidia card only, and also the intel iGPU only, and there’s no difference between them. There’s also very few settings I can change in the NVidia X Server settings, there’s no option to change the refresh rate.
Checking the OpenGL details in the “info center” is showing as the laptop using the i915 Intel driver and the proprietary NVidia 470 drivers.
I’ve tried other distros too, but they all have the same issue.
Attached is the NVidia bug report.
Any help getting this to work properly would be massively appreciated.
