I use an application called "Visual Molecular Dynamics", which opens an OpenGL window and renders 3D images. There is no problem when using the integrated GPU. But when I run the application using DRI_PRIME=1, the system freezes when the OpenGL window is being opened. I need to use the dedicated GPU, because the integrated GPU isn't powerful enough for my work.
OS: Ubuntu 16.04 64bit, with last updates
