I know, this should be more a question for the folks at Xorg but still.
Does FreeBSD support the "Sapphire ATI Radeon X1950 Pro ULTIMATE SILENT"
The support is up to X.org not FreeBSD.
Is there anywhere that I can find which cards are support with Xorg?
I find the main web site is rather obtuse.
I have an X1950 in my desktop system, the only driver that supports it is the
VESA one (which is very slow). According to the X.org devs no X1000+ Radeon
chipset works with the open source driver :(
If you are running i386 there is a hacky port of the fglrx driver -
http://www.fglrx-freebsd.com/index.php - it worked for me in my old system
(i386/Radeon X800) but my new system is amd64 so I can't use it. Hopefully
the guy will be able to create an amd64 version soon.
