Start benchmarking latency also, Michael. Artificial figures without vsync, and a non-low-latency enabled kernel means nothing. Everyone can compare enabling/disabling low-latency features, and see that without it, actual performance is poor.
Peace Be With You.
Fermi and Keppler cards offer zero improvement in SLI using Linux. I´m speaking from my own experience.
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.
I use my sandybridge 2nd gen onboard graphics. What exactly will I have to do in order to run L4D2?Quote:
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
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.
