Intel "The Intel 965GM Express Chipset represents the first mobile product that implements fourth generation Intel graphics architecture. Designed to support advanced rendering features in modern graphics APIs, this chipset includes support for programmable vertex, geometry, and fragment shaders. Extending Intel's commitment to work with the X.org and Mesa communities to continuously improve and enhance the drivers, support for this new chipset is provided through the X.org 2.0 Intel driver and the Mesa 6.5.3 releases. These drivers represent significant work by both Intel and the broader open source community."

I don't think that what Nvidia says is actually the real reason. If they had a good will to support FLOSS they could simply provide GPU specs to e.g nouveau developers. All the specs would have to provide would be what values to put into GPU registers to trigger certain functionality which perform calculation in the hardware and returns the result. They don't need to reveal IP in order to support FLOSS drivers.
