I've no idea how you tell, but aprarently there are two completely
different chipsets, theres no easy eay to tell which it is from the
numbers, and the numbers are just vague performance indications.
Theres a list here

I managed to end up with one with no free opengl drivers ofcourse :-/
The ATI proprietary drivers dont seem anywhere near as easy to install as
the NVidia ones. I did manage to get them to worth with the FC2 kernel but
it took quite a bit of hacking.
