All radeons up to, and including, the x1950 support 3D acceleration on FreeBSD/amd64. Enough to run compiz, openarena, nexuiz, etc...

The linux_dri port does not work properly on amd64, so 3D linux apps will revert to accelerated indirect rendering.

The DRM code is in -STABLE... The 7.2 prereleases support it but FreeBSD 7.1 did not support anything newer than the x850. You will also need the latest Xorg from ports for anything newer than the x850.
