Default ATi: 6 Linux driver releases a year?

Is this common knowledge yet or did it slip under the wire? I read about it in an interview a few days ago and meant to post up about it, but had a brainfart & spaced it.

Does everyone know that ATi announced they are going to be releasing a new set of Linux drivers every other month? I hadn't heard of it but think it's a good thing and thought I should share.

As a result they seem to have over-engineered in some aspects creating a power-hungry monster which is going to be very expensive for them to manufacture. We have a beautifully balanced piece of hardware that beats them on pure performance, cost, scalability, future mobile relevance, etc. That's all because they didn't know what to aim at."
