I don't get the fractioning part. It's not like there is going to be BF5 that wont work on NVidia, sure you may have to uncheck Mantle, but it will still play and look good doing so.

Of course it will work, but if you want the benefits of Mantle, you need to have an ATI card. and if you want the benefits of Phys-X (tiny as they are) you need an Nvidia card. And if you want the benefits of G-Sync, you need an Nvidia card. And I'm sure AMD will come up with yet another thing that only benefits their users.

PC Gaming is at its best when technology is being driven forward for everyone, not for the select few who happen to have piece of hardware XYZ in their system.

I'm happy to see advancement anywhere I can get it. I would say Steam OS does more fractioning than this optional feature.

Why? If you have Steam OS, you can still run Windows and vice versa. Nobody is going to be releasing games solely for Steam OS, they will launch games for both. That has no relation to having either an AMD card or an Nvidia card.
