Yes they did. 8,16,32 bpp, accelerated solid lines, aledgely
accelerated blits (the benchmarks don't really show it, but solid
lines seem very fast). No problems getting 1024x768 running
in 16bpp. 70K XStones in 8bpp on a P90 with 16Meg. Not particulary
fast, but stable and faster than generic svga, and with high color
and high resolution support. Linear framebuffer works but DGA
appears to be broken. There is still time for bug fixes though,
so DGA may get fixed before 3.2.
