How do I switch from my integrated AMD GPU and set my Nvidia GPU as my main GPU?

I'm new to Linux and in need of help. I have an ASUS TUF FX505DT with a Ryzen 5 CPU and a GTX1650 GPU. I need to switch my GPU from the integrated AMD GPU and set my dedicated Nvidia GPU as my main GPU. Can anyone tell me how I can do that?

I have tried a few distros and the only one that seems to detect and set my Nvidia GPU as the main by default was POP_OS. However, I really want to get this to work on my Xubuntu.

I read somewhere that I should just install the driver and it would set my Nvidia as the main after that but it didn't work for me (I checked and it was still running software on the integrated AMD GPU. I really need to get it to detect and set my Nvidia GPU as I do a lot of work with 3D Blender.

I also read somewhere that you can set it from the bios menu but that also didn't work(or rather my bios menu didn't have the option).

I don't want to have to go back to Windows because I found that I like Linux way more because it's very customizable and snappy!

Any assistance/insight/advice would be greatly appreciated!

Please help! Thank you!

Сначала проверьте, есть ли у вас графический процессор.

lspci -k | grep -A 2 -i "VGA"

Затем, если у вас есть карта Nvidia, установите драйверы. В настоящее время я бы порекомендовал 440, но последняя версия 450.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-driver-440

перезагрузите компьютер и запустите nvidia-settings. И чтобы выбрать различные профили:

prime-select query
sudo prime-select nvidia
