I'm considering buying this Thinkpad T61p laptop:

It lists this graphics card:

NVIDIA Quadro FX 570M

I'm not sure what driver, if any, will support it.

There seems to be the official Nvidia FreeBSD driver
provided for it:


but this apparently has to be installed outside of
the ports tree.

xf86-video-nv drivers list several other Quadro cards,
but not specifically 570M.

Maybe somebody has used this card, so can give a
definite reply?
