Switch Graphics Driver


I have Asus RX571GT and I would like to use intel uhd graphics driver instead of nvidia drivers, to save battery. How can I do?

Thank you in advance

Hi @Mirawara, and welcome!

The question is would you like to permanenly disable the nvidia GPU, or use it only for some applications? Because it is done quite differently.

Also, could you please provide the output of:

sudo mhwd --listinstalled

Installed PCI configs:

              NAME               VERSION          FREEDRIVER           TYPE

 video-modesetting            2020.01.13                true            PCI

video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-prime 2020.11.30 false PCI

Warning: No installed USB configs!

I want to disable it for now
