EA's Frostbite 3 Engine and AMD

EA's upcoming Frostbite 3 engine will be optimized exclusively for AMD graphics cards, reports IGN, noting this may relate to AMD being the graphics chip supplier for all the next-generation consoles. According to their story: "Starting with the release of Battlefield 4, all current and future titles using the Frostbite 3 engine Need for Speed Rivals, Mirror's Edge 2, etc. will ship optimized exclusively for AMD GPUs and CPUs. While Nvidia-based systems will be supported, the company won't be able to develop and distribute updated drivers until after each game is released." This follows the earlier news that EA Sports' Ignite engine won't support PCs for the foreseeable future.

Hasn't this kind of thing been going on for a long time? I suppose with AMD powering two of the major consoles they'll probably see more multi-platform games optimizing for their cards, but I seriously doubt nVida cards will be more than a few FPS behind in those instances.
