Only the vesa driver will work with that GPU on FreeBSD.  There are a
few HD6xxx GPUs that fall into the Everygreen code name, which are
supported by xf86-video-ati without any 2D or 3D acceleration, but that
particular one seems to be a Caicos chipset, which will not work with
xf86-video-ati without KMS.
