Reduced Graphics Performance Fedora25 (intel/nvidia)

This is my bench mark: "export vblank_mode=0; glxgears".

I had upgraded to Fedora25 and was getting a solid 12,000 FPS. Now I am getting 1,000 FPS.

So I know that stock Fedora can do it, but I've lost the proper configuration and can't figure out the issue.

This is hybrid graphics hardware. An Intel Haswell controller (i915) which feeds 3D rendering to a back-end nVidia chip (GK107GLM [Quadro K1100M]).

Yes, there are two chips, but the second is not directly addressable. There is no BIOS option. All processing goes through the Intel chip. Thus solutions that recommend bumblebee, optimus, or prime do not apply here. There are no nVidia proprietary drivers loaded. Using gdm-x-session

I could almost guess this is an Intel chip setting issue, but I'm not sure. Any ideas on where to look for a solution. Thanks a bunch!

This is my bench mark: mark for testing graphics performance: "export vblank_mode=0; glxgears".

I had upgraded to Fedora25 and was getting a solid 12,000 FPS. Now I am getting 1,000 FPS.

So I know that stock Fedora can do it, but I've lost the proper configuration and can't figure out the issue.

This is hybrid graphics hardware. An Intel Haswell controller (HD 4600) which feeds 3D rendering to a back-end nVidia chip (GK107GLM [Quadro K1100M]).

Yes, there are two chips, but the second is not directly addressable. addressable as a display device. There is no BIOS option. option for manipulating integrated versus discrete garphics. All processing goes through the Intel chip which off loads to the nVidia chip. Thus solutions that recommend bumblebee, optimus, or prime do not apply here. There are no nVidia proprietary drivers loaded. Using gdm-x-session

I could almost guess this is an found some old notes which indicate that the nvidia chip should be listed as a provider from xrandr, with Source Offload and the nouveau driver. However, the current output from xrandr does not list the second chip, only the Intel chip setting issue, but I'm not sure. chip.

Some potentially helpful output below.

Any ideas on where to look for a solution? Thanks a bunch!in advance!
