output change?

What is the output of`inxi -Gxxxz`

?

Just wondering if there is a way to diagnose the issue using the data.

In a dual-GPU system (such as a laptop with Optimus), I'm pretty sure in the Nvidia X Server settings show both GPUs and the screens for both (but it's been a while since I've seen one so I could be wrong). Your image does not show that. What happens with some of these desktops with dual GPUs is sometimes they act similar to an Optimus-style laptop, but other times they do not. It's my understanding that it depends on how the motherboard is designed as to how it shows up in Linux-based distros.
