Default Can Geforce8 do hardware OpenGL?

"An X module for wrapped software rendering (/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libnvidia-wfb.so.x.y.z and optionally, /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libwfb.so); this module is used by the X driver to perform software rendering on GeForce 8 series GPUs. If libwfb.so already exists, nvidia-installer will not overwrite it. Otherwise, it will create a symbolic link from libwfb.so to libnvidia-wfb.so.x.y.z."

Does it mean there is no OpenGL hw acceleration in Linux on Geforce8?

This module is needed to perform certain 2d drawing operations it is not for 3d. 3D is accelerated else you wouldn't get such nice scores in games.
