As told by NVIDIA, releasing hardware specs is a legal minefield. Quite often there are hardware components which NVIDIA uses but for which they themselves do not have the right to release the specs for. Whether that's the truth is another story, but the OpenGraphics project stuff I've read seems to indicate that it is indeed a problem. It just isn't cost effective to develop everything yourself when you can use 3rd party components, but those components often have quite restrictive contracts and licenses.
