Actually, yes it does, as it's far too easy to break things like Crossfire support playing with the profile. ATi's profile includes things like load balancing, etc, due to the proliferation of the TWIMTBP program. Crysis still doesn't work right...

Anyway, ATI is a unified architecture, and nVidia is not. This difference means that every single app runs differently on each side...it's been like this for ages.

ATI and nV even rendered scenes in the opposite order(front to back of viewable 3D area), so you can only expect so much from ATI....they are very busy reverse-engineering apps to get them to work right on thier hardware due to apps designed/developed to run on nV.
