I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with the new proprietary drivers from nVidia, that support their Optimus Technology in Linux. I'm thinking of installing them when I have a day off, but I've heard that there may be issues (one of which requires the user to have kernel 3.9 or later, or you get a blank screen), and don't want to potentially trash my system. I wouldn't risk this since I have functional BumbleBee drivers, but they seem to hardly take advantage of the hardware.
What should an individual know before installing them? Is the performance good, or is it just energy saving drivers? Do I have to know which GPU (Intel or nVidia) is handling the laptop's monitor, and if so, how do I find that out?
Thanks for the information.
