Chromium (and probably Chromium-based browsed) also can take advantage of hardware acceleration, but on Mesa+open source kernel drivers (i.e. Gnu/Linux, OpenBSD) sometimes it fallbacks to software rendering.
Anyway mpv also has OpenGL backend.
My point is that a lot of software currently accelerates 3D and 2D graphics via OpenGL/OpenGL ES using hardware acceleration or fallbacks to software rendering.

He has Radeon HD 8670M. It is GCN-based graphics card. I remember that there were some issues with GCN-based cards in *BSD world. I don't know current state, [not]but I would recomend Intel GPU anyway.[/not]

On the other hand he has i5-6200U. Skylake. Back in September 2015 there was an update to Intel driver (ported from Linux) and newest supported Intel's GPUs were of Broadwell generation (predecessor of Skylake). I would not be surprised if Skylake is still not supported.
So original poster (OP) can have too new hardware for OpenBSD system :/
