Default ATI Radeon HD 6250 1366x768 resolution problem

Hello there,

I recently purchased Gateway laptop NV51B08

AMD dual core C-50 1.0 GHz, 320GB HD, ATI Radeon HD 6250 graphics.

I am running OpenBSD 4.8_amd64. Everything seems to work including Fn keys. Only think that is not working is the resolution 1366x768 (native)

I did X -configure and load and save the xorg.conf.new to xorg.conf in
/etc/X11. Then edited to set default to 1366x768 even with vesa driver.

It always default to 1024x768. I even tried 1280x768. Whatever I do it will only display 1024x768. xrandr command confirm 1024x768.
Looking in dmesg it appears that this ATI video chip is not supported yet.
I am not looking for 3D support, just to display in native 1366x768 even
with vesa.
Also I did try latest 4.9 snapshot with same results.
It is anything I can do? Or just live with it until ATI chip get supported in
the future releases.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

thank you
