See, if you’re a gamer or uber-nerd, you’ll know about the following three different things: Nvidia Optimus, a technology that seamlessly goes between a discrete and integrated graphics card so you can play games on-the-go without munching up your battery. Second is Punkbuster, an anti-cheat program for popular first person shooter games, and three, how I’ve gotten both Nvidia and Punkbuster to wake up and start fixing the incompatibility of the aforementioned technologies to work together, so people with say, an Alienware M11x R2 (that I’m typing this on now) can actually play these games with multiplayer.
The whole problem is too long and confusing to explain here, so let’s just say Nvidia released a new driver today (that doesn’t fix it), but above they promise me it’ll come in a future release.
