I do not know about newer CPU versions as I have a second generation
i7. I also have had to give X an hint via xorg.conf. But this was more
than a year ago and should not be needed anymore.

If your is a fourth generation i5, it could be that it is not fully
supported yet. Just check the FreeBSD wiki regarding KMS, Intel etc.
