    One reason is framerate, its far higher with nvidia-prime than Bumblebee.

    I have asus k55vm with nvidia gt 630m. I have installed bumblebee+opimus in ubuntu 12.04.3. But it returned all error messages whenever I started discrete graphics mode and did not show the nvidia properties box. Later I found in a forum that ubuntu 13.10 onwards optimus support is good. I installed 13.10 and nvidia properties box started displaying when i gave the follwing code in terminal:
    optirun -b none nvidia-settings -c :8
    Also bumblebee gave me options to use dicrete card for individual applications like gimp, chrome, etc. Better install 13.10
