Let's hope AMD's OpenGL support will at least become decent on most platforms. So far AMD is way behind comparing to Nvidia in regards to OpenGL.

Especially on Windows their OpenGL performance has been really lacking. I remember having read a study of several cards from different vendors and consistently ATi cards were doing 30%-40% worse than similar NVIDIA cards in OpenGL tests, whereas in DirectX their performance was a lot more level.

Though, that study was a year ago or something so I don't know if they've improved lately.

Wasn't AMD at one point not even caching textures for Opengl apps?
