I need a new graphics card

Post by Tuxster.mk » Sat Nov 02, 2019 10:06 am

I need a new graphics card for my new build.
Was thinking of the AMD Radeon RX5700 XT but cannot find a lot of driver info for BSD support?

Would I be better off getting a Nvidia card instead?

Thx

Hello Tuxster.mk,

You can have a look on this page https://wiki.freebsd.org/Graphics.

That was the page I went to first. There is a link to supported AMD cards but I don’t think I saw the newer 5700 series.
I have a x570 chipset so I thought I would stick to an AMD video card.

If I can’t get confirmation of it working I will just pickup a Nvidia. This computer was to be my graphics workstation build but I really don’t like Win 10, prefer to stick it out with my Mac for now and put BSD on this computer.

A priori the drivers of recent graphics cards are regularly updated on FreeBSD even in stable version so you can test GhostBSD live at first to see if your card is well recognized.
