I just read a bit about hybrid graphics in linux… Now I am wondering why bumblebee is installed at my laptop as it uses an Intel HD graphics combined with an AMD Radeon card. Currently I use Prime for some applications that need the dedicated graphics card (or at least where performance benefits from it)
As I understood the articles about Prime it does not use bumblebee. Furthermore, I thought bumblebee does not work with AMD/ATI graphics cards. Therefore I am wondering, why it is installed by default by the installer and if bumblebee has any effect on machines with an AMD/ATI card?
Edit: I just realised that manjaro offers different drivers. Currently the intel and radeon drivers with bumblebee support are installed on my device. However, since my last check in the options a driver called “video-hyrid-intel-radeon-prime” appeared there.
Should I switch to that one and get rid of bumblebee?
