Currently, you have (at the best of my knowledge) three possibilities regarding Nvidia hybrid graphics (the so-called Optimus technology) under Linux: Bumblebee. While this project might seem dead, it’s not (discloser: I’m part of the dev team).

There are various ways to enable the Optimus technique. Bumblebee is just one of the solution for some supported computers. See this question with a link to the official Ubuntu wiki page.
