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 know that their network and wifi cards have required this, the graphics cards though, at least my Intel 945 hasn't required non-free firmware, as I run gNewSense and get good 3D performance. I'm interested in seeing if it's the same with this card, as I'm wanting to get a new laptop with this more powerful graphics card.
