However, I did not know it came with the fucked-up "Optimus" technology that still uses the shitty Intel 4600 integrated graphics to handle Windows (unsupported by CRU). I did my homework searching the forum, found in this post no more hope. It's frustrating, because I have an awesome computer but limited to 60Hz now.

So, could someone either confirm me that I am completely, 100% fucked, or is there a way to circumvent the problem by, for example, kill the Intel graphics to force the GeForce (no pun intended) to run Windows and handle resolution, enabling it to push my refresh rate OVER 9000 (or at least to a good 90-100Hz)?
If it's Optimus, I haven't heard of a way to disable it. It might be possible to add custom resolutions through driver-specific methods, but they aren't well-documented, and Intel's control panel seems to be broken at the moment: https://communities.intel.com/thread/781...0&tstart=0

It's impossible to disable Optimus completely.
However you can force Optimus to use the Geforce card to make sure games aren't switching to the Intel iGPU.

Quote:Hi guys, check page one, my post >>>#5

The work around I posted there will "force" the nVidia Optimus to use your dedicated nVidia GTX-8XXM card.
(This will work for most Asus NBs with Optimus enabled cards)
Most programs will benefit from this work around
Excluded from this work around would be "Desktop Settings", you will need to use the "Intel Control panel" for those settings.
(No "Desktop setting" are available in the "nVidia Control Panel" for Asus NBs with Optimus enabled cards)

PS: Plus if you play any "Web Based" (Diablo III, ect.) online games, go to program setting, then change your "Preferred Browser" to use the "High Performance NVIDIA Processor" also.

PS2: Plus you can "Force" most any program independently in program settings (not all will) to use the nVidia GTX card.
(If the program is not listed, try the 'Add" option, and add the program)

Hope this helps you guys?
Good luck, and good gaming my friends.

BTW there's a good thread (about Linux) that explains a lot more about Optimus, and it's a very good read. Remember Linux is like the old MS DOS system, where we gain COMPLETE control over the hardware unless the hardware itself doesn't allow it. (meaning you can brick your entire motherboard by flashing an EDID into the wrong i2c channel, etc). So a lot of tech savvy people know quite a bit about hardware.
