Intel liberates driver source code, AMD might too

Intel liberates driver source code, AMD might too:

"Intel has released the source code of the drivers for its latest graphics hardware. AMD might release the source code of some ATI graphics drivers too."


(Via Ars Technica.)



Thats big news. Intel releasing source code is not that big a deal for me, since its the integrated GMA card. However AMD releasing source code for ATI graphics drivers IS a big deal. At least I'm sure that ATI wouldn't do that for their higher end cards. The ones gamers use. If they do, Nvidia is going to be under pressure then.
