The availability of 3D acceleration depends on the version of XFree86 you are using and the type of video chip you have. If you have an NVIDIA chip, check out the FreeBSD NVIDIA Driver Initiative page, which discusses 3D acceleration for NVIDIA chips using XFree86-4. For other cards with XFree86-4, including the Matrox G200/G400, ATI Rage 128/Radeon, and 3dfx Voodoo 3, 4, 5, and Banshee, information on hardware acceleration is available on the XFree86-4 Direct Rendering on FreeBSD page. Users of XFree86 version 3.3 can use the Utah-GLX port found in graphics/utah-glx to get limited accelerated OpenGL on the Matrox Gx00, ATI Rage Pro, SiS 6326, i810, Savage, and older NVIDIA chips.
