Yes, although around these parts we tend to use pciconf -lv. You have
an AMD Radeon HD6300.

vt(4) is the KMS-aware system console. To use it, enter
in /boot/loader.conf. It will take effect on boot.
The problem of leaving X and having the screen stop responding is due to
the old system console not understanding kernel video mode switching.
vt(4) is the new console. See 'man 4 vt' for more information.
