They gave me the following from the TransNeft trashcan, indeed:

        VendorName  "NVIDIA Corporation"
        BoardName   "NV18 [GeForce4 MX 440 AGP 8x]"
        Driver      "nv"

It says "AGP" but in reality it is PCI, perhaps some very rare species
:) It has X-Video Extension version 2.2, my movies are back, hurrah!

In the meanwhile, I'll wait for the development of the SandyBrdige
Intel driver.
