Bumblebee artificially restricts max FPS, it does not allow using video
hardware acceleration or CUDA.

Well, max fps is not really a problem for most cases and Intel GPU vaapi works
also well. But totally agree for CUDA.

nvidia-xrun does nothing different from nVidia PRIME (or suse-prime),
except PRIME attempts to integrate it into normal startup and
nvidia-xrun requires explicit start from non-X11 session. It would be
really better to make suse-prime work and supported part of distribution
than add yet another hackish half-supported script.

nvidia-xrun actually has xsession files. But haven't tried them closely,
crashed one time and forgot about them for now. Main advantage of nvidia-xrun
over nvidia/suse-prime — it doesn't require to remove bumblebee, it still
working ok when you rarely need full nvidia power and don't want to relogin
for some game.

Kind regards,
Mykola Krachkovsky
