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.

I'm afraid if your talking about cutting edge graphics card technology. I'm the last one to talk to. Cutting edge graphics is an area that is both cripplingly expensive, with little application support on *any* platform.

To be fair I'd rather put my money into the CPU rather than a GPU, esp considering the price of quad-core at the moment. To be fair hardware itself is in a bit of a flux right now.

I say that but some killer application might come along to change that.
