Absolutely not. Have you googled for this? Try 'linux graphics GB960'. I
got plenty of hits. For a starter
The driver for this controller is known as i810, is open-source, and is
distributed as part of the X.org X server packages with Linux distributions.
This driver provides low-performance 3-D graphics acceleration capabilities.

I have a 6-year-old laptop that runs Fedora 6. Slow, but everything runs.
Again, have you googled? There's plenty of info out there.
