Parent article: AMD to open up graphics specs
Lets hope the specifications include ATI-based motherboards.
The only peice of hardware more poorly supported then ATI graphics cards are ATI (and nvidia) motherboards. Intel still has a massive leg up on AMD in this department (which is sad because AMD-based boards have had excellent AMD to Linux support backing them up)
Even if the graphical stuff gets fixed then those motherboards are still going to be a huge weak link in AMD's hardware line-up.
Of course that leaves running AMD video cards on Intel hardware, which should still be very nice.
If AMD opens up the ATI motherboard chipsets also then probably what will happen is that AMD stuff will be ideal for high performance desktops and workstations while Intel stuff would be ideal for mobile devices.
(speaking in terms of desktop Linux)
