The nv(4) driver, while open source, was developed by NVIDIA in 2003, and their participation appears to have ceased in 2010. The X.Org foundation continues to maintain the driver.

The easiest way to determine if your video card is recognized by the nv(4) driver is to test it. If the driver does not recognize the hardware, then the VESA driver will be used instead.

See this post to see how to read an Xorg.0.log file to determine which driver is being used.
