It seems a couple of critical tools for Optimus have finally found their way to users. The much sought after Optimus Test Tool which has been seen in many reviews and another tool are included. If you have just purchased a notebook featuring Optimus technology you no longer need to guess if it is working properly. Not sure why these tools are were not included with Optimus notebooks or drivers in the first place or why they have taken so long to get to users. The Optimus GPU State Viewer especially seems like an extremely useful tool.

Huge thanks to Darmach for pointing these out.

I dont understand...I downloaded it, I activated "Show applications rendered by dgpu " and it's still OFF (nvidia gpu). It only comes on when I enter the nvidia control panel. And I still cant play games because it's using intel hd and it's lagging. I have a nvdia 310m.
Please help

Newer drivers have this tool built into them. What notebook do you have AlexCiucu, and what drivers are you using?

I'm not sure what I did, but anything that is using the nVidia card in my n61Jv is just black.

Even when I go to the nVidia control panel, the preview is black. It didn't used to be, and I didn't do anything :S

Please help!

will disabling onboard forces optimus to ALWAYS ON ??? Win7 desktop experience seem to rely on intel onboard and gave me a bad score compared to lower class RADEON.
