The support is up to not FreeBSD.

Indeed :)

I have an X1950 in my desktop system, the only driver that supports it is the 
VESA one (which is very slow). According to the devs no X1000+ Radeon 
chipset works with the open source driver :(

If you are running i386 there is a hacky port of the fglrx driver - - it worked for me in my old system 
(i386/Radeon X800) but my new system is amd64 so I can't use it. Hopefully 
the guy will be able to create an amd64 version soon.
