    Yes. I replay your msg.

    And yes to. Any program I start using with prime is working and well. same the vmware 9 that with intel driver the 3d is a mess. Seems working better now. Less problems.

    But mine wish was to start ubunt/unit/compiz with this by default. Now with the unity/unity-greeter/compiz. The parser files inside /usr/bin "unity" and "compiz" arent used anymore.
    MAYBE this kind of hardware like mine work when using the "--setprovideroutputsource" mode ( like the usb one) . But I didn't test this. since when I use this in mine AMD card. The screen freeze because there is not the EDP/output configured. I need enter by ssh to try it.

    Ohh. but when using the ofload PRIME the both cards still working together. If you disable with vgaswitcheroo everything crash. and STILL no a way of SWITCH the card. INTEL/AMD.

    But the PRIME OFFLOAD is working 100%.

    Since you already have working setup, maybe you check some gaming PTS benchmarks?

    The problem with games is I didn't play with them, mine environment is not prepared with BENCHMARKS programs, Is more a personal computer and the only one i tested was quake and just for proof concept.
    but I can try. this weekend.

    One funny thing i discovered today is. when using glxgears in discrete graphics card with the card ON I get a number of fps. If i disable the discrete card with vgaswitcheroo ( for energy). The glx still work but with almost the half of the frames.


    More than integrated intel. but half from when discrete was ON.
