my discrete graphic card (nVidia gt 640M) has almost the same perforamce as integrated (intel HD 4000).

'vblank_mode=0 glxspheres' shows 160 fps; 'vblank_mode=0 optirun -b primus glxspheres' shows 130 (!!!) fps; 'vblank_mode=0 optirun glxspheres' gives me around 170 fps.

How can it be? I don't want to use Ubuntu :(

Benchmarking a graphic card (or anything else) is a can of worms ( , ) and the only thing that matters is how your applications run. You don't post this information, but i assume some of the runs actually use nvidia (see See also the comment by @karolherbst at and perform VERBOSE runs
