In a press release today, NVidia states that all of their components including the nForce Platform Processors as well as the Detonator Series of drivers for the Geforce line of video cards have been optimized for the AMD Athlon XP 2200+. They are trying to grab an edge where-ever they can if you ask me. Here is a quote from the press release:
“Through our deep working relationship with AMD, we have transitioned the PC from a rudimentary device into a platform that is capable of performing the most complex tasks requested by today’s most demanding users,” said Dan Vivoli, vice president of marketing at NVIDIA. “The combination of our nForce Platform Processors and AMD’s new Athlon processors manufactured on 0.13 micron process technology offers radical levels of performance and functionality at extremely competitive price points, and we look forward to continued architectural innovation as we deliver unprecedented real-time graphics, audio, networking and streaming experiences to the PC desktop.”

I wonder how you optimize for a processor who's only benefits include .13 die 
etching and faster speeds. It's not as if they included any new instructions to the 
chip. The thing I have always found amusing is that both ATi and NVidia's drivers 
have always run faster on Intel systems - though you can't really see that since 
they tend to be slower overall systems - though that is changing with the 
introduction of the new DDR Intel chipsets - yeah, I know but they still have to 
win with higher mhz though - haha.
