they don't say, that they release full blown drivers. Only a subset - and that can - and will probably mean: 2d only.
But nvidia already delivers full open source 2d drivers for all their cards (and ATI does not).
Also, that AMD/ATI merger is not done - they are still two seperate companies and will be two seperate companies for some time.
