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.
