AMD AMD started delivering on their word of providing GPU specifications to the open-source community without a Non-Disclosure Agreement, and now with the 2007 X Developer Summit having come to a close, we asked several key members of the X.Org community on how they judge AMD's recent move. They were also asked if they believe NVIDIA will follow suit in helping the open-source community. Those that responded were David Airlie, Daniel Stone, Jerome Glisse, Stephane Marchesin, and Oliver McFadden. Mark Shuttleworth had also previously commented on AMD's efforts.

3D isn't only about gaming. 3D visualization is becomeing more and more popular in all kinds of fields. In a few years time high performance 3d will probably be required all over the place in all kinds of businesses. This is in addition to the requirements modern UI's are placing on the GPU.
