There's GL_ATI_meminfo, but no spec about it. I think I found a way to find 
the current free video memory, but not the total one. The current free vidmem 
is comparably uninteresting because it is managed by opengl anyway and we 
cannot implement a proper D3DPOOL_DEFAULT pool due to that.

I haven't seen any equivalent to this on the nvidia side
