Hello, I’m very new to Manjaro and this forum so excuse my ignorance. Im running on a pretty old setup ASUS X550 with Nvidia 740M “inxi -G” outputs the following :
Device-1: Intel 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics driver: i915 v: kernel Device-2: NVIDIA GK208M [GeForce GT 740M] driver: N/A Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.8 driver: intel resolution: 1366x768~60Hz OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 4000 (IVB GT2) v: 4.2 Mesa 20.1.3
I’m trying to run some light games with “optirun” but my fps gravitates around 20 on the lowest settings. (I also have a windows machine with Nvidia GT 710 which does pretty fine with this game.)
When i run “optirun -b none nvidia-settings -c :8” while the game is running, under Nvidia 740 it says GPU-Utilization: 0%, so im wondering if im using the dedicated GPU at all.
“mhwd -li” also oputputs following:
Installed PCI configs:
NAME VERSION FREEDRIVER TYPE
video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-418xx-bumblebee 2019.10.25 false PCI
Can someone please tell me if I’m doing something wrong or is my laptop simply too old. Many thanks in advance!
