I don't know about when 1.0 came out.  I guess that would have been the
Lightwave 4.0 days.  I don't think I used max until 1.1, and Lightwave
5.0 came out somewhere in the vincinity, and it would do realtime shaded
polys.  Of course, you wouldn't want to do real time shaded polys on a
486.  Of course, you also wouldn't want to use Max at all on a 486.
Lightwave 5 was quite usefull on a 486 though.
