Well, from now on you can recommend also AMD Tahiti up to Polaris
alongside the binary Nvidia driver, assuming the system is amd64. :-)

Thank you!

It does look to me that there is a need for continued support to exist.
So we will create a port now and then I will propose removal of drm1
from base so that users of graphics/drm-next-kmod and
graphics/drm-legacy-kmod can more easily co-exist in the future. I will
probably issue a CFT after the port landed to make sure that everything
still works and would much appreciate if people with the hardware could
give it a spin.

Thank you everybody for your responses!
