Okay, so I have a laptop with i5-5200U, with Intel® HD Graphics 5500 and a discrete GPU AMD R7 265M.
My problem is that GNOME 3 runs quite poorly (as in choppy animations and general sluggishness) with the integrated GPU. I have tried running it with Wayland and I have tried using UXA as the AccelMethod on X. Both of these things do very little to alleviate the problem.
Either GNOME 3 is enormous resource hog , or the Intel drivers haven’t caught up yet.
So my only other idea is to use the discrete AMD GPU for everything. I followed this tutorial on the ARCH website - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PRIME but it only shows how to enable it for intensive applications.
So my question is. Can anyone help me in using the AMD GPU for everything?
