Difference between madwifi driver and integrated chipsets

I was just doing some reading on different upgrades avaiable for my computer, and I came across a replacement for the atheros a/b/g wireless card in my machine. It's an Intel 2915abg. I'm looking at this more out of curiosity than anything else, but could someone tell me if they know whether this card is supported by the new driver that was integrated into the linux kernel as of 2.6.14? Can someone point me to a document explaining the real funcitonal diffreences between madwifi and wireless drivers which are built right into the kernel? More than that, does anyone have any reports on the quality of this card as far as power consumption and signal speed go? I would really like to try and eliminate as much proprietary stuff from my system as I can, but I'm not sure whether it's worth giving even more money to Intel for functionality that I more or less already have.
