Yes, it does.

Actually, that's not true. The Radeon 8500 is a far superior 3d card,
even with vastly inferior drivers. Most benchmarks tend to bear that
out. However, the speed of the card means nothing if it isn't
stable. My 8500 is much faster than my friend's GeForce 3, but I
experience crashes in the middle of things like 3dMark2001. So who has
the better card?
