Thanks Mykola,

I've tried all this things. IMO problem is, that nvidia card cannot
recognize display. I've read that this is problem on some laptops.
Maybe it's bug in driver.

No, you are not connected to any display - this is normal. It's only a
virtual X, the card renders the frames, but the output is sent to another X
(if I understand things correct).

Be it as it is, I do get exactly the same messages in Xorg.log, and also my
nvidia-settings tells me screen is at 640x480. My laptops' screen is
2560x1440. So that is not the issue...

One stupid question: Is your battery inserted?
When I got my laptop new I continued my habit to remove the battery when on
AC (improves lifetime a lot...), but then my Lenovo would only run at
lowest CPU speed (800MHz)....

Yes, Peter is right, that's not a sign of issue. TBH, I've run out of ideas.
The only I could suggest to install parallel openSUSE Leap 42.2 and install
drivers from official nvidia repository without Bumblebee at all and check
performance there. If it is low, then it's definitely nvidia problem. If it's
ok, then Bumblebee (or something other) has an issue.

Rather than using Bumblebee, try suse-prime.

*suse-prime*


Provides GPU (nvidia/intel) selection for NVIDIA optimus laptops

A collection of shell scripts that makes it possible to use the NVIDIA GPU on a
Optimus Laptop.
The switching is similar to the feature provided by the nvidia-prime package in
Ubuntu.
However, no such package has been made for other distributions.
This is exactly the functionality this package provide.

https://software.opensuse.org/package/suse-prime

This allows you to use the driver downloaded from the Nvidia site.
