    I thought Nvidia Prime currently forces laptops to only use the Nvidia GPU? My laptop overheated so much that I went back to Bumblebee.

In those systems, where switching from a card to another in the bios not available, can experience some heating issues, bacause the gpu always powered.

    First of all optimus support and then everything else.

    Don't waste your time with that person.

    And to those wanting SLI, the binary driver has been known to offer it. Just...not that easy to configure and set up.

    Wasteland and anything that isn't directx 9c+. Shadowplay is useless as is.

    AFAIK DX 7 titles are not listed as being supported by Shadowplay in the first place.

    What I want from Nvidia? Simple.

    All the same features they have on windows, in an open source implementation on Linux.
