Tuff Gaming 5600 2 Gpu inside what is best?

I have a Asus Tuff Gaming 5600 laptop.I have no idea how to check what Gpu is running .and what Gpu i should be using .Videos play fine i still have not tried to play Skyrim as yet.

inxi -Gazy will list the GPUs in the machine, and which one is used for OpenGL rendering.

I have a screen shot but not sure i can share it .So my GPU im running on is AMD .please how to switch to Nvidia.

After you’ve installed the nvidia drivers in Manjaro Settings Manager > Hardware Configuration, and the nvidia-prime package, you can run any program on the NVIDIA GPU by using prime-run <command>.

I tried to install yay following the instructions on you tube for making nvidia gpu primary .I get an error command not found in the konsole sudo pacman -S yay
yay -Syu
yay -S nvidia
yay -S base-devel
yay -S optimus-manager optimus-manager-qt
sudo systemctl enable optimus-manager .I was able to follow an install method to manually install yay.

Found a Xorg config file at ‘/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-mhwd.conf’.This file was auto-generated by the Manjaro driver utility (MHWD). This will likely interfere with GPU switching, so Optimus Manager will delete this file automatically if you proceded with GPU switching.

Proceed?ok so after finding a video for How to setup optimus manager on manjaro by Denshihelp.i get this at the switch to nvidia

If i click yes the PC reboots,and doesn’t save nvidia as default,if i say no to the above error.my guess is it switches to the onboard gpu .Has anyone else had this problem with optimus manager .?

If i click yes pc reboots.

You can proceed. It shouldn’t cause any problems.

I did and the pc shuts down and reboots,what is the cmd to check please if nvidia is set to defaults

Well, it shouldn’t reboot, only log you out and restart the Xorg server. glxinfo -B will tell you the current OpenGL renderer.
