How to install Optimus drivers
Recently I did a clean Windows install on a Dell 6430 laptop. The laptop has an NVIDIA dedicated GPU as well as integrated Intel HD graphics.
The best part is, NVIDIA’s Optimus feature. This cool technology can save power (use Intel graphics) when doing desktop type tasks and then switch automatically to the more powerful NVIDIA dedicated card when playing games etc.
Sometimes the drivers can get a bit tricky but I can good success with the following:
- First, install the latest Intel HD Graphics drivers from Intel
- Then, install the latest NVIDIA drivers
After that, everything has been working perfectly 🙂
