Today, it is possible to have some of the functionality of the console, either because the loader does not yet provide access to some units of the PS3, either because they do not yet exist that allow drivers to use them:
Wireless network connection for Slim models. In Fat models, depends if enabled using OtherOS utilities.
Graphics acceleration. To date I have not aware of any drivers for the RSX.
