    No bumblebee. The benchmark was on a workstation using the nvidia and nouveau drivers.
    but as far as i know .. the nvdia proprietary drivers dont work on linux and for that only the bumblebee project is there...

    is this a comparison b/w linux with nouveau drivers and a windows with nvdia drivers? or on linux only...

    if my information is incorrect regarding bumblebee project.. please correct me..

    Thanks.

      Bumblebee is for dual-GPU configuration, usually with one main Intel GPU for regular use and an additional Nvidia GPU which is only used when you need extra power. The secondary GPU uses the primary GPU for display, so the two drivers must communicate. Bumblebee is for switching between the two GPUs.

      For the normal configuration -- one card only -- you don't need bumblebee, just an Nvidia driver. Either nouveau or the blob.
