I remember back in the early 2000's I had a ultra low notebook based on a Celeron Mobile 266Mhz, something like that and this NeoMagic 256AV graphic chip. Back then I remember that it was supporting only 2D acceleration and no 3D drivers seems to be available. But I also remember to have read some opinions that the chip itself may have had some 3D support / unknown drivers for Direct3D. Was that a myth or really it could have supported Direct3D? And anyway was that any good in DOS games or anything 2D compared to the alternative desktop older solutions?
I remember back than I spent a lot of time looking for those drivers but I end up using it only in 2D (Half Life ran quite well in software mode).
