According to http://www.golem.de/0412/35119.html

"So plant ATI für die nächsten sechs Monate volle Unterstützung für
64-Bit-Prozessoren in seinen Linux-Treibern, besseres Monitor-Management,
bessere Kompatibilität zu PCI-Express-Karten und eine neue, einfachere
Installationsroutine. Dazu hat der kanadische Hersteller laut Terry Makedon
im letzten halben Jahr sein Linux-Team verdreifacht. [von Nico Ernst]"

ATI plans indeed full 64 bit support for x86_64 in their proprietary binary
drivers, better monitor management, better PCI-X compatibility and a new,
simpler installation. According to Terry Makedon, ATI tripled its Linux
division in the last half year.

And they'd better fix that poor performance in comparison to nVidia...
