On windows there's an Intel icon in the system tray that lets me drag a slider and switch between "performance" and "quality" graphics modes that automatically turns on and off certain features in order to let the games run faster or look better.
I am having a lot of trouble finding something like this for Linux. I have read in some places that there is an xorg file that needs to be edited, but I have read in some other places that this method has been deprecated so it's all very confusing.
In particular, my top priority is turning off any power saving feature that might be on, as well as turning off any "enhancing" feature so that the games run at the highest fps possible, even if they look like crap. I want to do this because I have an Intel i3 350m processor and the integrated graphics can barely run the games and I want to squeeze every bit of performance I can on Linux, in the same way it is possible on Windows.
Thanks a lot!
