  • Lenovo z570 only use nvidia chip?

    Does anyone know of any way possible through BIOS to get my laptop to never use the intel graphics chip? - The number 1 Linux gaming community

          dude it uses the intel 1 to save power when you dont need the grunt of the real gpu.

          idk if you could disable it, or tbh why you would really want to

            interestingly, though, Lenovo hasn’t opted for Nvidia’s Optimus technology, choosing instead to utilise a physical switch on the laptop's front edge. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing: where Optimus automatically switches between the Intel and Nvidia chipsets as it sees fit, the Z570 has you swapping chipsets at the flick of a switch, which you could argue gives you more control. Sticking with Intel’s integrated HD Graphics 3000, the Z570 lasted a healthy 5hrs 27mins in our light-use battery test.
