OpenGL is crossplatform, that part is easy. User interfaces are platform specific.... Tell you what. You get me the complete source code for Maya and I will find the bug.
as for the size.... one of the article writers reminded everyone that nVidia went as far as to ship prototype boards to game writers that had half the pipelines disabled so that ATI would not know the true design for the 6800. It worked, the design was leaked (even with NDA's in place), ATI through a party believing they had outdistanced nVidia again, and then when the 6800 was released it was twice as fast. So what the answer is? wait and see. nVidia could have tossed up a red-herring, or accidentally said too much. we don't know.
