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."

It might be all-right as long as you use a supported graphics card and only use one of the lucky supported platforms - Otherwise you're fecked, because no specs are revealed, not even under NDA.

If and when nVidia choose to drop support of your platform and/or of your hardware - you've got a major problem, that only reversed engineered opensource drivers can patch a bit.
