Installing NVIDIA Driver on Ubuntu 16.04

I am not sure if there were NVIDIA drivers when I installed Ubuntu 16.01 on a machine with Intel processor and GTX 1060 graphic card, but at least I saw this in the terminal (it is not clear what actually FAILED):

First I updated the system:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo reboot

Then, as described here, I did:

ubuntu-drivers devices
sudo apt-get install intel-microcode
sudo apt-get install nvidia-384

played a bit with Driver Manager, used the following commands:

sudo lshw -c video
sudo vainfo
sudo lspci

and now I have an impression that I am using NVIDIA driver:

It is not clear how to force P0 state, as I did on Windows. Currently my overclocked card on Windows 10 works on 17% effectively than not overclocked card on Linux, the average hashrate is 259H/s vs 213H/s, but the current hashrate is about 300 Sol/s vs 280 Sol/s.
