I have the "FireGL" 7800, but the core of that and the 7500 are
identical -- it's all in the Windows drivers. :/

Anyway, that bitching aside, you can get 3D hardware acceleration with
this chipset, yes. I have used it in the past and it works fairly well.

The one issue that I found was my machine, an IBM Thinkpad A31p, would
hang hard once in every three days or so, and only while completely
idle, if I have DRM support enabled.

aggression by the aggressors is against the truth.
