No.  NetBSD/pmax has no support for it.

PMAGC == Pixel Vision == PV is the successor of PX/PXG (PMAG-D/E/F) product
line combined with HX (PMAGB) priciple and cleaner design.

If PV has a linear plain framebuffer memory accessible from CPU just
like CX/MX/TX/HX, and HX+ (PMAGD) support goes well (still in not
useful state), then PV support could be done as if it was just a plain

There is a documentation about Pixel Vision architecture, but when I
read it I concluded it was not useful to write driver for it.
