I think to buy a new PC with a dedicated GPU.
But as I generally (in my day to day work) did not need a dGPU, I think about energy saving by using an iGPU for daily work, and only use dGPU for gaming, or Video-Editing if needed.
On Reddit I’ve seen that on Windows is kind of auto-switch possible.
Means, you do following:
- setup auto-GPU-Switch in Bios
- connecting only the iGPU with the monitor
- OS doing the rest internally
Is it possible to use it that way ( or some kind of similar way) in manjaro?
Or may there be a way to set the power-consumption of the dGPU via Linux? That also could be a way to minimize power-consumption if not needed (e.g. for office work).
