I had installed bumblebee 3.0 for my nVidia geforce 635M card in ubuntu 12.10 and got instant results – temp ad fan speeds reduced, batt backup extended to almost 6 hrs. (from 1.5-2 hrs earlier) and upon comparing glxspheres with and without optirun, got the fps to jump from ~60 to ~130.
But when bumblebee updated to version 3.2, I suppose it updated fine and was active, but the batt life reduced to about 4 hrs. Also optirun glxspheres gave an fps of ~60, although it did recognize the nvidia card and mentioned it in the output.
is this a bug or some limitation on 3.2? should i revert to using 3.0?, and if so, how to fix it.
PLease help as I loved the long batt backup and higher fps earlier.
Also, I saw in some post on the internet that someone got an fps in the range of 1300 – 1600 fps after starting nvidia hardware acceleration whereas I had got only 130 fps…whats the catch there?
