Switching from iGPU to Radeon GPU

Hi Dear community,

I have some questions since I have integrated Intel GPU, and second more powerful Radeon GPU.

  1. How to check if Radeon card is performing when I call command “DRI_PRIME=1 process_name” (I used xSensors to look for change in temperature of Radeon, but in case of “Inkscape” and “Gimp” doesn’t show any change in temperature while for OBS it does)

  2. Is there any easy way to set up Radeon as default (for those new to linux)

  3. Is there any app like “Optimus Manager” for Radeon GPU’s?

Thank you


  1. This would be one basic way:
glxinfo | grep 'renderer string'
DRI_PRIME=1 glxinfo | grep 'renderer string'
  1. PRIME - ArchWiki

  2. I dont think so?

Thank you, I really appreciate it.
