    Wow those are like really expensive cards, no? And I get a better score on my El Cheapo HD 5750. Nice to know that ATI can beat NVidia on Linux

    I get 42fps on my HD4850 @ 750/1100 wiht the same settings as the OP. CPU is a Phenom X4 at 3GHz. Can you test with one of the cards? Quad SLI is known to be rather inefficient in Windows, so I can't imagine how crummy it would be in Linux. Do you have a Windows install handy that you can test the benchmark on? Would be interesting to compare the different SLI numbers under both operating systems.

    actually I do, I tried AFR mode under Linux and performance was terrible by the way..

    Peformance in Windows was really really bad.. and for some reason it would not set fulscreen mode to my panels native resolution (1680x1050) it fails to do so with an error message, but the demo keeps running. Happens with both directX and OpenGL. This seems as though the Engine itself has issues with quad SLI?
