Lucid Virtu is a NVIDIA Optimus like technology used on desktop PC, sandy bridge supports it.
Unlike Optimus and Lucid Hydra which needs some special hardware device, it is a pure software technology.

I have an i5 CPU and z68 motherboard, recently I want to buy a new graphics card (amd HD6770) and use radeon open source driver.
Is there any support of this function on linux?

Doesn't Look Like it...
Lucid Virtu MVP: What it is, and why you'll want it on your Intel/AMD motherboard. Read zoku88's post.
