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."

XGI provide Open Source drivers. It was also be logical for S3 to provide open drivers, as they're hardly making a killing in the market right now and it couldn't do any harm. I don't really think you can call either of these two companies hardware "high end" though. Higher than a GeForce 4 or Radeon 9250, certainly, but they can't compete with nVidia and ATI at the top end.

They don't need to compete on the high-end, they just need to be well documented enough that developers can make them perform like a high-end card...
