I have to used FreeBSD 10.0-ALPHA1 for a while but it was to difficult for me. I run FreeBSD on iMac 11,1 which has:
Chipset Model:	ATI Radeon HD 4850
  Type:	GPU
  Bus:	PCIe
  PCIe Lane Width:	x16
  VRAM (Total):	512 MB
  Vendor:	ATI (0x1002)
  Device ID:	0x944a
  Revision ID:	0x0000
  ROM Revision:	113-B9110C-425
  EFI Driver Version:	01.00.383
  Display Type:	LCD
  Resolution:	2560 x 1440
  Pixel Depth:	32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
  Main Display:	Yes
  Mirror:	Off
  Online:	Yes
  Built-In:	Yes
  Connection Type:	DisplayPort

On FreeBSD 10.0-ALPHA1 it worked very good but for me 3D is not important. I installed FreeBSD 9.2 one hour ago without problem and run "portsnap fetch extrac"t and I like to install Xorg and KDE. Do I need to have in make.conf "with_new_xorg=yes", please? Does xorg t need hal?.  Does anyone has Radeon 4850 GPU type, please and it works?
I had problems with sound settings on CURRENT and I note that will be better now.

Thank you very much.
