    It isn't just wine, even Valve's port of the Source engine to Linux is optimized towards NVIDIA proprietary blobs. Just recently we got to the bottom of a serious at the Steam for Linux github with Valve on the horrid performance and input lag of, especially, their multiplayer titles like TF2. The culprit is they are relying on a feature not in OpenGL specifications that NVIDIA drivers perform. NVIDIA has the desktop market cornered with around 70% of graphics cards being NVIDIA, so most games are being optimized towards NVIDIA binary blobs.

          There was nothing Nvidia-specific there. The issue in that ticket is AMD's fault, a legal optimization gone wrong.

            Unless TF2 has regressed this can't be right.

            With my amd card its a smooth on linux as it is on windows.

            hd5750 amd phenom II X4

            Nvidia has a lead over amd performance wise, with openGl but Valve is talking with amd too.

            And amd is talking with game developers, like croteam ( serious sam )

            There will be games released were we will be greeted by and amd logo.

            We do not know the future, but for now steam coming to linux is one of the best things ever for linux.
            Even Richard Stallman said it might be a good thing for Linux.
