Re: Intel video drivers on linux


Honestly I am using the intel driver more often than the built in nvidia in my ux302 zenbook. Mostly to get better battery time from it. I find it very stable.

I have a friend who recently got a Xiaomi pro 15.6 inch laptop and runs linux on it, it comes with both nvidia and intel drivers and also a quite speedy processor and build quality for a reasonable price.

I will let him test his out a bit before I myself am thinking about doing an upgrade to the xiaomi. The build quality truly feels amazing.

I know this is not specifically a kicad development question but I am in
the market for a new laptop before the end of the year and figured this
might be the best place to ask.  I was wondering if anyone has any
experience with intel graphics chips (namely the 630) drivers on linux.
I prefer nvidia graphics chips on linux because the proprietary nvidia
drivers on linux are typically hassle free but I would rather spend my
hard earned money on ram and nmve drive than graphics hardware which I
really don't need and already have on my desktop system.  Thanks in
advance for the help.
