Vertex transformation wasn't added until Nvidia Geforce 256 which was around 2000.

As a graphics card you could use the onboard HP PA with its 55 MIPS for that where as Vodoo didn't have a CPU to assist.

"GeForce 256 was marketed as "the world's first 'GPU', or Graphics Processing Unit", a term Nvidia defined at the time as "a single-chip processor with integrated transform, lighting, triangle setup/clipping, and rendering engines that is capable of processing a minimum of 10 million polygons per second."
