I recently installed Elementary OS 5 Juno on my laptop which has hybrid Nvidia 1060 GTX and Intel card. After installing the nvidia drivers (3.90.77) the Nvidia optimus is automatically able to run applications on the discrete card without installing bbswitch, or bumblebee for that matter.

However, I want to control specific applications such as google chrome to run on Nvidia. Is there a way to manually select and run application on Nvidia now that I am not using bbswitch?

Here is the output of nvidia-smi
