Intel At the Linux.Conf.Au conference today, Intel has announced NDA-free programming documentation covering the 965 Express and G35 Express IGPs. Intel's display driver has long been open-source, but up until now, they have not been releasing the programming documentation for these products to the public. This move comes months after AMD announced their new open-source strategy and began releasing register documentation on their R500 and R600 GPUs. These newly released documents by Intel even cover 3D and video programming for their IGPs.

Intel does open source since a long time, this is just the documentation for the source. AMD/ATI is in a inferior situation, but nVidia doesn't need such manoveurs. So if there is a need for nVidia, they will certainly do it at once.
