"Almost every hardware component in a modern desktop PC has good Free drivers but no video vendor (excepting Intel) wants to release 3D specs. Seen lots of theories float, no idea which might be true."
Hmm, I keep hearing that these days.. So, where can I download the programmer's reference for say a 855 or 915 chipset? The Intel site only offers more global GMCH specs. Or are these available only under NDA to selected parties? For the old 815 a good set of free documents is available.
