I can't find this info. I knew that the G75 equipped with 3D technology is not able to use Nvidia Optimus due to the 3D itself. What about the standard G75 with GTX 670M? Is it optimus enabled or not?

Optimius is display switching technology rather than 3D. The G5s are not equipped with this, however you can use Intel QuickSync even when the 670M GPU is enabled. Optimus is not often used these days on any laptop due to the extensive power savings done on the GPU and PCIe lanes, plus it simplifies the drivers giving a more consistent performance.
