Current version:
Medium Urgency

Upstream connections


Many recent notebooks with a discrete nVidia card in it and an i3/i5/i7 processor use the nVidia Optimus technology to improve battery life. Unfortunately, this software solution is only available in Windows 7 and later. While work is going on in the kernel and drivers to support these notebooks, Bumblebee is a temporary solution allowing you to disable the discrete card if unused and run programs on it if requested.
