DJ it looks like it does. I mean, it runs 3d games. :P
I was more wondering because someone mentionned that browsing websites was very slow on the RPi2 due to lack of hardware acceleration. Plus I remember that on my 2.93 GHz single-core computer in 2009 my browsers would freeze for 10 seconds while loading every Facebook pages and scrolling was atrociously slow. If I had such troubles opening websites on such computer, imagine how bad it will be on a 400 MHz computer with 32 MB of RAM, even moreso if it lacks hardware acceleration.

That was me. And yeah, the rpi2 still lacks the drivers for that. It has full opengl support so the gpu is usable but the gui doesn't rely on opengl directly so it uses the cpu. <_<
