Disable Optimus on Inspiron 7567?

Is it possible to disable Optimus on the 7567 and use the Nvidia GPU as the primary GPU? I've got Linux installed on my secondary drive and using the Nvidia GPU (instead of the Intel iGPU) is a hassle, and Vulkan support is non-existent.

No, it's not - this is a software controlled hybrid system - there's no hardware connection between the display panel and nVidia GPU.  The data must pass through the Intel GPU -- the nVidia GPU is just a co-processor; it's not primary and cannot be made primary.
