The CPU functions are certainly supported. The APU's are a CPU + GPU
combo but since the CPU part uses the AMD64 instruction set it will run
FreeBSD. I am pretty sure the GPU is an GCN 1.1 'Sea Islands' which is
not yet supported.
For a home server you will probably be fine with just the CPU functions
unless you want to do something really exotic. You can always use the
vesa drivers for the gpu until support lands.
