I thought it was an Intel-inside thing ;-), but obviously no, or not

I must admit that this is new to me! I'm not familiar w/ laptops w/ 2
devices like that. Now I understand why under Windows, Dell has
installed both Intel and NVidia software.
Could anyone explain why such hardware configuration?

I'll try disabling nouveau as soon as I can and let you know, but also
try the opensource version from nvidia. Thanks for both suggestions!
