I don't get it.
How come there is money pumped into supporting hardware from a company that is completely Open Source hostile??
This money is way better spent in improving Intel and AMD hardware!
And since Intel has quite a large team itself, that would make AMD _the_ candidate to receive this work/money/TLC.
Or even better, work on _generic_ infrastructure.
I can think of a few examples: Gallium, OpenCL, OpenVG, OpenGL 3.x, OpenGL 4.x, etc...
