See Matthew's email below:
So you're saying that some developers might be able to get the Hybrid SLI working for the Dell Studio XPS 1340 in the near future? I hope so, I know Dell sells a version of the Studio XPS 1340 with Ubuntu pre-installed, and it's sold with the 9500M G using Hybrid SLI, so hopefully this will get more people working on a proper fix (that will also work on my G 210M).
