New G713PI-XS96, do I really need all the graphics software?

Level 7

I recently purchased a new G713PI-XS96. It has the AMD graphics built into the Ryzen chip and the discrete NVIDIA RTX4070 and came with all the usual AMD and NVIDIA software loaded. Is all that software really necessary? I prefer to update drivers manually rather than relying on bloatware running at all times, and, do I really need both the AMD and NVIDIA gpu's doing their thing all the time rather than just disabling the AMD and allowing the 4070 to handle everything? If I need lower power consumption while running on battery I can always just disable the NVIDIA and enable the AMD. The Geforce software only seems interested in loading the games drivers while I want to run the studio driver for video rendering so it isn't even good for driver updates.

Any thoughts?
