I have laptop Acer Swift SFX16-52G with two Intel video devices.

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Alder Lake-P Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:46a6] (rev 0c)

03:00.0 Display controller [0380]: Intel Corporation DG2 [Arc A370M] [8086:5693] (rev 05)

 

when I run Linux

Linux work 6.1.8-arch1-1 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Tue, 24 Jan 2023 21:07:04 +0000 x86_64 GNU/Linux

 

only internal video works.

How I can use both?

Thank you for posting on the Intel Communities. Please let us know the following information to assist with this issue:


1.-Please elaborate on the exact issue that you are experiencing as well as the symptoms of the issue. What are you referring to when you say that you want to use both GPUs? Is this for a multi-monitor setup or for a specific application? Please let us know.

2.-Please run the Intel® System Support Utility and attach the log file. Instruction to get the log file on Linux can be found on the release notes on the same website.

Hello andreineustroev


Thank you for your patience. In regards to Hybrid Graphics on Linux, this will vary depending on the Linux Distro/Flavor that you use, so it will be always better to directly contact the specific distro support.


You could also try using the Prime Feature on Linux. In case you need additional support on this topic you could also post your questions in this GitHub forum.
