No, you need a hardware accelerated graphic card.

The gnome-panel will still be available in GNOME 3.0 and will still be
maintained for people without the correct hardware support. As of now,
all intel, amd/ati and nvidia cards sold in the last five years should
be enough to run gnome-shell though you might need a binary driver for
nvidia or a rather new radeon driver with 3D support.

gnome-shell and this list have some longer discussion about hardware
