Unfortunately, the hardware aspects aren't the problem. The ATI/NVIDIA hardware already implements these patented features. The problem is that the software drivers have to implement parts of them to support various corner cases. It might in theory be possible for the drivers to just be thin wrappers around hardware which implements all these features, but that would make the cost of the hardware skyrocket.
Also is possible known if at least intel have made some workaround about similar problem on their drive? For their Cpu?
