Steam for Linux has appeared on CDR Database
| by Shunal Doke |
Valve had announced in July that its extremely popular digital distribution platform, Steam, will be making its way to Linux, along with a port of Left 4 Dead 2, since a platform for selling games would be useless without any games to sell. Now, the beta for Steam Linux has made its way to the CDR Database, which is an open list of all items available on Steam.

The blog reports that originally, the initial port of Left 4 Dead 2 was only running at 6 FPS (frames per second). They then had to optimise the code to work better with the Linux kernel and OpenGL; they even had to optimise the graphics driver. After these modifications, the blog reports that Left 4 Dead 2 is running at 303.4 FPS on their high end testing machine. The tests were done on a machine running on Intel Core i7 3930k with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 GPU and 32GB of RAM. On the software side, they used Windows 7 Service Pack 1 64-bit and Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit.
