    Update: I got an Issue with the driver included with Antergos: it is very slow.

    I downloaded the latest nvidia drivers from nvidia.com:

    NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.48.run

    I booted in multi-user mode, then removed the nvidia drivers:

    pacman -R nvidia
    pacman -R nvidia-settings
    pacman -R nvidia-utils


    then i installed Linux headers:

    pacman -S linux-headers

    and then install the Linux drivers :

    chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.48.run
    ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.48.run


    Options: DKMS=yes, no 32bit (I dont used it), no generare configurations.

    I also removed this file:

    mv /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-nvidia-drm-outputclass.conf ~/

    and update my multimonitor Xorg configuration file:

    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.con

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "layout"
    Screen 0 "nvidia"
    #Inactive "intel"
    EndSection

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "nvidia"
    Driver "nvidia"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    #Option "RegistryDwords" "PowerMizerEnable=0x1; PerfLevelSrc=0x3333; PowerMizerDefaultAC=0x3"
    #Option "Coolbits" "1"
    Option "ConstrainCursor" "off"
    Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration"
    Option "PrimaryGPU" "yes"
    EndSection

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "intel"
    Driver "modesetting"
    BusID "PCI:0:2:0"
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "nvidia"
    Device "nvidia"
    Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration" "on"
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "intel"
    Device "intel"
    EndSection


    And this is my grub configuration:

    cat /etc/default/grub | grep GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet button.lid_init_state=open nvidia_drm.modeset=1 i915.modeset=1 nouveau.modeset=0 pcie_aspm=off resume=UUID=f9c58016-cf97-4a79-91ec-80e08d6a418f"

    And my modprobe blacklist:

    echo 'blacklist nouveau' > /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau.conf

    And I also update grub and initramfs image as usual:

    mkinitcpio -g /boot/initramfs-linux.img
    grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg



    Now it works flawlessly.

    I'm running on arch. I have most things working. Right now I'm still working on:

    * Internal webcam is slow and then fails - my external works fine.
    * starting out of suspend/hibernate causes random suspend/hibernates for no apparent reason.
    * I need to switch to using xrandr to scale just the laptop screen. My external monitor is 1080p and is huge.

    Once I have it completely setup, I'll update the arch wiki. Besides the normal install, I've had to do the following:

    # Wireless driver - you'll need a usb network adapter to get started.
    wget -O /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA6174/hw3.0/board.bin http://www.killernetworking.com/support/board.bin

    # These are the drivers for the toucpad and video card.
    sudo pacman -S xf86-input-synaptics xf86-video-intel

    # stop screen flickering.
    cat >/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Intel Graphics"
    Driver "intel"
    Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"
    #Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
    EndSection

    I also used the gnome-tweak-tool to change the window and font scaling. You can adjust to your liking.
