Yes and no, it has "Switchable" (with the Intel being default) and "Discrete"
(only) as options. For the reference, my laptop is a Acer Aspire Timeline

With Discrete selected in the bios, HDMI also output doesn't work (haven't
tried radeon.audio=0 but I assume it would work then).

But I notice two difference compared to switchable. First, the HDMI audio
device is not listed in the neither gnome-volume-control pavucontrol anymore,
even though lsusb and alsamixer do list it. Second, the screen goes off when
plugging the HDMI cable in or out or when switching sources to/from HDMI
from/to TV on the TV (only switching to a VT and back to X seems to recover
