It's a little more fine-grained than that, but broadly yes. nouveau is
probably lagging the most at the moment, but I expect gnome-shell
support to be a primary feature-completeness target for 3D drivers from
this point out. Sort of the way quake3 was in 1999.
There does exist other hardware where we could have a better 3D story
and nobody's put in the legwork yet. [...]
Of course, the big one missing here is virt.
