I don't recall what the specific chipsets are, now.  It was about a year
or so ago.  But I don't spend a grand on equipment in the hope that it
*may* be supported in a year or so.  It's got to work *NOW* to be
useful.

And, as I recall, back then, ATI was still all closed source with a hope
that it may become more open, but not yet.
