Title: Nvidia Optimus: bumblebee vs nvidia-prime
Post by: intuxikated on July 09, 2016, 02:08:36 am
i'm using a laptop to game on, and i'm currently using the nvidia-prime solution to switch graphics cards, which is default among most ubuntu based distributions. 
however it does have some issues with screen-tearing and being tedious in the switching process.
almost every non-ubuntu based distro is using bumblebee by default to switch between graphics cards, with either optirun or primusrun.
are there any performance differences between using Bumblebee with primusrun and nvidia-prime?
does anyone have more experience with the differences between the two?
are there people who use Bumblebee on peppermintOS?

i'd like to know your thoughts on the subject
