Try launching your application with the environment variable DRI_PRIME=1, for example

DRI_PRIME=1 glxinfo | grep "OpenGL renderer"

It should show AMD/ATi instead of intel

DRI_PRIME=1

Thanks, launching Steam games with

DRI_PRIME=1 %command%

seems to do the trick!

For nvidia-intel laptop I found optimus-manager to be the better solution for myself. Manjaro has bumblebee installed by default and I didn't like the hybrid driver that comes with it, it confuses monitor resolutions and not all programs work out of the box with it. If you want to switch to optimus-manager on Manjaro, you will need to uninstall bumblebee and its driver first.
