I’m not entirely sure if this is the correct forum to post, but eh. I’ll give it a shot.
We often hear about Nvidia switchable graphics within the Linux community, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard of AMD switchable graphics mentioned anywhere.
With the soon to be released Big NAVI AMD cards two weeks from now, I suspect we will start to see laptops with AMD dedicated Graphic cards.
We can assume to see Laptops with the following configuration.
Intel iGPU + nVidia dGPU
Intel iGPU + AMD dGPU
AMD iGPU + nVidia dGPU
AMD iGPU + AMD dGPU
What I’m worried about are the AMD GPU options in this list. It’s no surprise that Linux nvidia Optimus isn’t as polished as it is on windows, and requires some manual intervention. With the announcement of AMD dGPU and iGPUs, how would one setup switchable graphics?
I’ve already tried to search for an answer, but most of the answers are from eons ago and are most likely not applicable.
