Default BSD's and the newer Video Drivers

I am looking at getting a low power motherboard was wondering if the newer intel NM10 boards have xorg support in either FreeBSD or OpenBSD?

I found this article on the issue it looks like OpenBSD has the 2.14 xf86-video-intel driver but I am a little confused as if this driver is supposed to have linux centric Kernel Mode setting or if the BSD's have implemented a work around?


Anyone running xorg in this chipset with the intel driver?

My initial search were using NM10 and intel. Different search terms indicate the video is supported
