The G35 appears to be handled as a G965.

I have the ASUS P5E-V HDMI board, which has a G35. I haven't yet been
able to get my monitor to sync on the HDMI output. Not with
xserver and xf86-video-i810-git as of two days ago, anyway.

It works well with VGA, although I think the picture will be a little
bit crisper with the digital connection. 

OpenGL and Xv works to my satisfaction, as does 2D.

There appears to be a lot of work and time being put into the intel
driver these days, so I expect it will make the most out of
this chip both in terms of features and performance before it has become
*completely* obsolete.   :-)
