    Phoronix: Fedora 25 Is Vetting Their Switchable Graphics Support This Week

    For those with a NVIDIA Optimus laptop or other dual-GPU system, Fedora QA has organized a test day this week for testing the switchable graphics support for Fedora 25 that will be shipping later this month...

    For folk using Switchable graphics on Intel/AMDGPU they might want to take a look at: https://lists.freedesktop.org/archiv...er/122370.html and https://lists.freedesktop.org/archiv...er/122372.html

    Finally tear free PRIME

      Jeez, try to be more pretentious.

      If this is how it actually worked (i'm skeptical), I don't see why it would be a bad thing. If the "hipsterzOS" is able to get users by polishing up Fedora for a particular set of users, that's Free Software working as it's supposed to.

      As for the substance of the piece, will this GPU switching UI work equally well when the binary Nvidia driver eventually supports Wayland? I don't have much need for switchable graphics using nouveau.

        Right. So how's your testing coming along?

          The ball is on Nvidia to enable Wayland support on their proprietary binary driver

            Will this have any bearing on me ol Ivy Bridge i7 + Radeon 7670, or am I being screwed out?

            Because I'm tired of having to dual-boot to Windows for heavy 3D shit and don't feel like buying a new laptop just yet when this one still works fine (in Windows at least....when it works).

              Griffin I fail to see what recompiling Gentoo has to do with this, as you can see from the links I posted from above I've been helping with testing this PRIME work, if you do some searches in bugs.freedesktop.org you can see I've reported many bugs over the years

                @Griffin,

                One can only hope you'll somehow stop needlessly spamming each and eve
                ry Fedora-related article with mindless drival about other distributions. It adds nothing and only makes Fedora look bad.
                ... And I'm saying it as a (very) long time Fedora user (since FC2) and a (small) Fedora contributor.
