AMD "This morning at the X Developer Summit in the United Kingdom, Matthew Tippett and John Bridgman of AMD have announced that they will be releasing their ATI GPU specifications without any Non-Disclosure Agreements needed by the developers! In other words, their GPU specifications will be given to developers in the open. Therefore you shouldn't need to worry about another R200 incident taking place. The 2D specifications will be released very soon and the 3D ones will follow shortly."

3D games are really low-latency realtime case: you need to deliver a frame between two vblanks, which is a problem over the network (network latency, en/decoding, buffering frames, etc.), especially if you spend time on en/decoding (also many codecs have frame difference stuff which may require more frames present to encode).
