Mostly drivers, as HW provides most of the required functionality. Or it's emulated via drivers.

Also there are cases of different behavior between different vendor's drivers. Some match DX behavior some don't. While OpenGL doesn't explicitly specify which is correct.

Also some nVidia extensions implement missing from OpenGL features. While neither ATI nor Intel provide those.

And don't discount Wine - it has lots of bugs that show up on one or the other card. Somewhere it could be combinations of Wine's limitations and game requirements. Somewhere it's a dumb assumptions on game developer's side.
