Anything to back this up? AFAIK the steam survey comes randomly and not by how many games a user plays (I'm playing a lot on linux but never saw the survey).

Actually I think I have to amend my earlier comments a bit.

I assume with multithreading the CPU frequency is set low and this causes a bottleneck.
If I use the cpufreq performance governor, Multicore Rendering is disabled by default (but it can be enabled... I think) and performance is fine either way.
So now I just set the governor to performance before playing L4D2.
Ohh and as a side note... I installed Steam on OS X for the first time the other day... and immediately the survey popped up.
