Play your games with the best performance.
If you had a NVIDIA GPU, it’s possible to install the drivers and active with just three simple steps. Tested on Ubuntu 14.04 and elementaryOS Freya.
01 – Install NVIDIA Prime and Drivers
# sudo apt-get install nvidia-319 nvidia-settings-319 nvidia-prime
02 – Restart your computer
Just restart as usual. Go to power button at topbar and restart.
03 – Active NVIDIA Controller
Go to apps launcher and open “NVIDIA X Server Settings”.
At sidebar, go to PRIME Profiles and activer NVIDIA GPU by click on NVIDIA (Performance Mode). At first time, maybe you need to restart your machine.
04 – Just play!
At this point, all your NVIDIA performance will be used by your apps and games. Just open your games and play it!
