Nvidia 470xx Prime work with OverWatch but not the Nvidia 495.46

Hi guys,

I have a MSI GS65 laptop running very well on Manjaro. I may play OverWatch on Nvidia 470xx prime drivers and everything run fine. But if I uninstall the 470 and install the Nvidia 495 drivers, the game doesn’t start anymore.

The Battle.net launcher still launch but the Play button indicate the game loading and then switch to « Play » again.

In the process monitor I can see an Overwatch process but nothing on the screen.

Someone experiencing the same problem ?

I used to have optimus-manager. Same problems.

I only have a « classical » 495 install.

Do I need something to add in nvida.conf ?


Are you sure your graphic card supports the 495 driver. If not you will have to stick with the 470 drivers.

I have a RTX 2070 so yes it must be.


Do I need to regenerate a xorg.conf file ?

Because inside there’s some crucial elements missing :

nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig

nvidia-xconfig: version 495.46
