I don't know. I'd have thought at least some accelerated cards have O/S
drivers, certainly my own Radeon driver is from Debian, and the
acceleration works. I don't play games, so I don't know how well it
works, but once I had discovered how to enable the acceleration I could
see the Gnome3 desktop. I still threw it away in favour of something
that needed fewer clicks to operate.

This was a few years ago, by the way.
