    Well, this popped up today on that CDR website thingi: http://cdr.thebronasium.com/sub/16571
    Last Updated 2012-09-07 05:28:18
    Name ValveTestApp218980 Early Access
    Don't know if that's connected to the LinuxSteam sub that was detected yesterday but since it has 'Early Access' in it's name, I guess it has.

    In other words, send requests to /dev/null?

    Even on Windows the biggest problem with SLI is micro-laggs. Basically you'll need a much higher minimum framerate in order to have a smooth gaming experience.

    I'll be testing it out with my GTX 580. Hope I'll get an invite for the closed beta.

    If you use ubuntu, probably add a PPA. Though honestly, I think "won't run" is a gross exageration, but we'll see.

    While Left 4 Dead 2 can run on the Intel Mesa driver, this is only with bleeding-edge code not found in Ubuntu 12.04

    SLI has to be supported by the game itself.(and i am talking about Linux version)
    And I am sure as hell you will get it ruining on reasonable FPS.
    I got 470, in wine game was working quite wel, but at some stage FPS dropped for second or two to like a few FPS, so not really usable. also over clock on those cards is not possible, at least for 470 seria for sure.
    A GTX460 is quite different from a GTX470. The 470s use the original Fermi GF100 chips that many people described as toaster ovens and such. Because they already ran so unbelievably hot they were difficult to overclock without expensive cooling solutions. The 460s use the significantly cooler and more efficient GF104 chips and have generally pretty good overclocking potential even on stock cooling. I had a 460 from MSI that already came with a mild overclock and was able to overclock (via firmware flashing mind you) much further to where it was on par with a stock 470 for the most part.

    I will agree about SLI not doing much of anything in Linux, granted I haven't tried in several years so it may have changed since then.

    Fermi and Keppler cards offer zero improvement in SLI using Linux. I?m speaking from my own experience.
