    It would be nice if you test it with Mesa 10.1, according to users/developers on the bumblebee IRC there is a bug in Mesa 9.2 creating a bottleneck. My nvidia card increased the performance under Bumblebee for about 29% after I updated to 10.1

      when we test fps in games, who give a fck about energy saving? no, iam not idiot, but looks like you are.
      its faster than bumblebee, render is correct.

      this test was about SPEED not SWITCHING GPU.

        Except it wouldn't matter how fast it is when it's unusable in the real world. Genius.

            Well, it has now switching support: http://www.webupd8.org/2013/12/more-...imus.html#more

            This is for Trusty, but I've backported it to Saucy: https://launchpad.net/~joern-schoeny...prime-backport
            (There are also packages for Precise, but the blob is still missing and it's not tested yet)

            I can switch easily - okay okay, I have to log out and in again. But that's totally fine for me. Michael, would you be so kind and benchmark this, too? :-)
