Request for nvidia-xrun
Closed, WontfixPublic


Name: nvidia-xrun

"These utility scripts aim to make the life easier for nvidia cards users. It started with a revelation that bumblebee in current state offers very poor performance. This solution offers a bit more complicated procedure but offers a full GPU utilization(in terms of linux drivers)"

Is it open source? Yes, GNU General Public License v2.0

Anyone that uses an optimus laptop that wants to eek out the best performance when using their nvidia gpu without having to switch drivers and restart finds this utility a necessity.

The project seems dead, a lot of pull requests just waiting to be included, also last release was multiple years ago, is there a fork that's a bit more active?

v0.4 is planned.

This requires the utilization of dedicated sessions and session files to utilize nvidia-xrun, it conflicts with nouveau, doesn't work with Steam (kinda when you'd want the full capabilities of your GPU) and regardless of whether a release is planned or not, it's been 4 years since the last release and it hasn't seen any actual development since a PR merge in June.

It's dead, Jim.
