Sorry, I have an older model card. It is a 5200 FX, IT doesn't have support in 64-bit.
Nvidia's blob support for FreeBSD is laughable at best. AMD's non-existent. The reason is simple: noone is using FreeBSD for 3d graphics. Unlike Linux, FreeBSD doesn't have a workstation market, hence no money are to be made there.
Which leaves open-source support. How many FreeBSD developers are contributing to Mesa, Gallium and R300/R600/Nouveau/Intel? Count them and I think you'll see why the driver situation sucks there.
There's a few devs working on open-source Radeon support for FreeBSD now. FreeBSD 9 should have 3D acceleration when it is released.

ROFL, Panix, you're the best troll on here after gordboy.
You STILL don't have an ATi card, yet you've spent the last year starting 3 threads a week about how much ATi sucks.
You must lead an interesting life :cool:
BTW, most Mesa and X code is under BSD-compatible licenses (i.e. not GPL).
Most of it will run in usermode (not requiring Linux KMS).
The drivers are there, it's just that nobody cares enough about making them work.
As for panix being a troll, I'd say he's just merely stirring controversy rather.
