3D News, GL, DirectX Yesterday, we reported on the statement several kernel developers had signed that urged hardware manufacturers to open up their Linux modules and drivers. "We, the undersigned Linux kernel developers, consider any closed-source Linux kernel module or driver to be harmful and undesirable," the statement read. Nvidia, which delivers probably the most prominent closed-source Linux driver, has reiterated its position concerning this matter.

The nvidia chip has a much more elaborate setup and many many more transistors.

I'd say the ATI chip design is very good for what it does. Its cheap to produce, sips power, stays cool, and its *scalable* by adding on die copies or on board copies.

Comparing price to performance its pretty obvious what most sane people would fork over money for.
