• How to active discrete gpu for gaming


    I have a asus notebook its model is x552cl it has i5 3337u cpu and geforce 710m gpu.
    i’ve tried to activate discrete gpu with vga switcheroo and prime methods but none worked when i type
    glxinfo | grep render
    in terminal i see current renderer is mesa intel ivybridge mobile
    and after using some vga switcheroo commands
    sudo echo ON > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch
    sudo echo DIS > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch

    the output of this command is same
    sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch

    0:IGD:+:Pwr:0000:00:02.0
    1:DIS: :DynOff:0000:01:00.0

    so how can i activate and use discrete gpu for gaming ?
