Nvidia Optimus Gives Laptops a Graphical Gearshift

By Richard Adhikari

For gamers or anyone else using a computer for heavy graphics work, a discrete graphics card is a must-have. For laptop users, though, discreet graphics can be a real drain on battery power. Nvidia's new Optimus technology is able to discern which types of applications need the heavy-duty hardware and which can be handled by the integrated graphics processor, then smoothly transitions between the two, saving power.
