Yes, it would be the case.

Some video cards have a PCI cheat-mode in which they keep
the PCI bus busy until they are ready to accept new
commands, rather forcing a retry. Figures of up to
twenty milliseconds have been mentioned. Your X server
*may* support the `PCIRetry' config option which will
defeat this.
