Default FreeBSD 6600 series

Hi, does anyone know when the next expected driver release for FreeBSD since I've just bought a 6600gt and the FreeBSD drivers does not support this card.

Thanks.

I would also like to know this. I have just bought a 6600AGP and love the card...

But it only works in VESA mode on FREEBSD. (ia32). I don't know about amd64... that would be nice also...

In the meanwhile I guess I'll run LINUX. I just don't like it as much... it's harder to upgrade and keep current on the OS and the ports. (Well I'll go for GENTOO I guess.)

The upcoming NVIDIA FreeBSD driver release supports the GeForce 6600 family of graphics cards; NVIDIA hopes to release it in the near future, but I don't have an ETA.
