Of course. Did you seriously think the answer could be anything else? If you want to know what the limits are, read the FAQ and start browsing bugzilla and the AppDB.

It already does that for some games. If you want to know whether the games you want to run fall into that category, check the AppDB. If you're asking whether that will ever be true for all games, the answer is no.

That sounds like a known bug in the 2.12.0 through 2.15.0 Intel drivers. It was fixed in 2.16.0, so if you're not using that version, upgrade.
