Nobody has really worked on graphics in the same way. This is just the beginning, besides hardware does not provide a generic interface such as the intel and amd hardware does. So it's not that easy.
Also, I'm sure nvidia has quite a bit of resources to throw at their driver. They even have time to hardcode (like rewriting shader x if game y). That is just insane from resource perspective.
