I just got a new Dell XPS 15 L502X with these specs:
- CPU Intel i7 2670QM with Turbo Boost (integrated graphics : Intel HD 3000)
- Discrete Graphics: Nvidia GT 525M
It was ordered from Dell France. Before ordering it, the salesman assured me my configuration does not have Nvidia Implemented. I called back Dell Support in France and once again they told me all XPS 15 with i7 have Nvidia Optimus disabled in them even though the systems have two graphics chipsets (Intel and Nvidia).
I installed Ubuntu 11.10 but before installing Bumblebee or Ironhire I want to make sure my system has no Optimus.
~$ lspci -vnnn | grep VGA
gives the following:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0116] (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : nVidia Corporation Device [10de:0df5] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
How can I make sure of this. Thanks in advance.
