Yes. Definitely.

Don't know about AGA, because I still have an A3000, but it seems to be 
5-10 times faster than Xdaniver on ECS with Xamiga24 (without blitter).
The new Xcv64 speeds up some operations (filling rectangles, copying windows,
drawing lines, etc.) another 10 times (measured with x11perf) on my system.
But this may depend on your cpu and ZIII access speed.

If you buy a new Cybervision be sure to get the kernel fixes from 
regensburg, though.
