I’ve got an Acer Aspire V3-571G. This laptop has Nvidia Optimus and this features:
- Intel i7-3632QM with Intel HD Graphics 4000
- Nvidia GeForce 710M (2GB VRAM)
I usually use Fedora 20 as main system but cannot install Nvidia CUDA development kit, so i decided to install an additional Ubuntu 14.04 and it works well with some problems:
- System freezes randomly (i am able to rescue changing from graphical tty to text tty and returning but it’s annoying)
- I need to dedicate nvidia card only for deploying apps, but i don’t know how to disable nvidia card graphic mode. I didn’t explain well so i’ll do in other way: I need to use all graphics cores and memory for my programs and if i use some of them for showing, i’ll lose performance. How can i do disable nvidia graphic card for showing? Remember: this laptop has Nvidia Optimus (Hybrid Graphics) and i don’t use bumblebee.
Thank you and sorry my bad english.
