View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to turn off Ati discrete gpu

February 26th, 2011, 04:24 PM
On my desktop computer I have igpu Ati HD4200 + discrete gpu Ati HD4850 (noisy and power greedy). I have dualboot - windows (used mostly for gaming - that's why I have discreet gpu) and ubuntu for other stuff. I would like to completely turn off discrete gpu in ubuntu and use just my integrated gpu - is this doable?

In my search for "HowTo" I stepped on this http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=7933876&postcount=11 - will it help in my case?
