It is now 2016. and I've been wondering is it now possible to run simultaneously Intel HD 2500 and Nvidia GTX 650 Ti Boost on Ubuntu? I've set it up on Windows 7 after enabling iGPU support in BIOS and it's working great. I tried setting it up on Ubuntu and I ended up with crashed Ubuntu and had to reinstall it again.
When i run
lshw -C video this is what i get:
*-display description: VGA compatible controller product: GK106 [GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost] vendor: NVIDIA Corporation physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0 version: a1 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom configuration: driver=nvidia latency=0 resources: irq:33 memory:f6000000-f6ffffff memory:e0000000-e7ffffff memory:e8000000-e9ffffff ioport:e000(size=128) memory:f7000000-f707ffff *-display description: Display controller product: Xeon E3-1200 v2/3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 2 bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0 version: 09 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: msi pm bus_master cap_list configuration: driver=i915 latency=0 resources: irq:30 memory:f7400000-f77fffff memory:d0000000-dfffffff ioport:f000(size=64)
By the way, I'm using dual boot.
Just to be clear, I have two monitors with VGA port, one of them is attached to Nvidia card and another to VGA port on the motherboard. I'm asking this because I've read answers which are 3,4 years old, and maybe developers found a solution for this.
Also, I'm running the latest 16.04 Ubuntu
