It doesn't look like it.

Perhaps someone more familiar with PC implementations of X than I am
can be more helpful. I do recall seeing postings that indicate that
you can start up your server in different modes. You may want to
check your server documentation.

Was that all you got from xdpyinfo? Usually you get a list of
Visuals. You may have to use some command line parameter -- I'm
logged in remotely from a cruddy VT100 emulator and can't check easily
myself at the moment.
