Additional Comments

Wine needs to be set to Windows 7 and DirectX (as bundled with the game) needs to be installed afterwards. The DLLs d3dx9_43 and d3dcompiler_43 need to be set to native in winecfg. Otherwise only the mouse cursor is shown on black background. My system has an Nvidia Quadro FX 1800M with Nvidia blob release 285.05.09 installed.

HowTo / Notes

How to use hybrid graphics switch Open Source drivers Intel/AMD, AMD/AMD and improve performance

This should work for any app, if you have Intel + AMD or AMD + AMD with open source drivers. 

If you have laptop with hybrid graphics cards. You can launch game with command:

env DRI_PRIME=1 vblank_mode=0 wine ~/path/to/your/exe/file

In case of using command, you get swich to powerful graphics card and disable vsync for more FPS.

If you have Mesa drivers 17.x.x or more, you can use this command:

env DRI_PRIME=1 mesa_glthread=true vblank_mode=0 wine ~/path/to/your/exe/file

Last command is most best in performance that you can get in this moment, you can use it for any wine application that you need. But argument mesa_glthread=true may not always work, so if your app crash, remove it.

For Steam users, you can set environment variable of any applications in properties. 

DRI_PRIME=1 mesa_glthread=true vblank_mode=0 %command%

(It will work only with native Steam for Linux) For Wine, you have to start Steam or game with those arguments
