Yes, if we ship it, it's supported.

They're rather different from a 3D perspective. The GMA X3100 is a
mobile chip based on the Gen4 graphics engine (code name Crestline). The
GMA 3100 is a desktop chip based on the Gen3.5 graphics engine (code
name Bearlake).

The Gen4 engine has support for GLSL for both fragment and vertex
programs under development right now, while the Gen3.5 engine supports
only the older ARB fragment programs.
