    The lack of info and trying here, from a long time member is slightly annoying.

    Just in a few min, I came across this...

    /wiki/Nvidia_Optimus


    It seems as people have a hard time getting the card to work, compared to the slower onboard which is probably whats causing the "slowness".

    Also bear in mind that the intel GPUs that are paired with the nvidia GPUs in Optimus are too new to work in Xorg with the intel driver unless you use the Intel KMS patches.
