Pay attention the Skylake info in the FAQ. It is important.

"NVIDIA GeForce 940MX dedicated graphics card
High performance dedicates graphics card,supports directx 12,CUDA,physx and Boost 2.0 gaming effects."

above is from online shop product description. So, I think it should be "dedicated" card. So, my question is are there possible enable dedicate graphics NVIDIA GeForce 940MX??

It is likely Optimus. People that write marketing text don't know what they are doing.

I'm sure it use Optimus to have better battery life since it's not a high-end gaming laptops. Only high-end laptops not using optimus (like Asus ROG G751VY and other)
