Is the iwm driver supposed to work with wlans on 5 GHz now? Yesterday I updated a laptop to the latest FreeBSD 11.1-stable
tingo@kg-z30b$ uname -a

So I was reading one of the many articles on the spectre bug and performance decreases, and I was drawn to this article that was linked to by theregister.
So this is complete malarky way of measuring this right. I know that raid controllers mess up zfs cause it can't use info from the disks...
I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X230 with the Centrino Advanced-N 6205 card. I've got FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT installed and I can successfully connect to my home WiFi on the 5 GHz band. However, I'm noticing that there is a significant performance hit to my Internet speeds.
When I had a Linux distro...
Hail daemons of the internetz,
I have just gotten a new Lenovo X270 and decided to try out FreeBSD on it; I come from the GNU/Linux world and had installed FreeBSD on my home music server and found it a great experience. Therefore I decided to install on my new laptop as well.
I upgraded the version from 10.1 to 10.4, it still can not detect my eMMC 5.0 device. I check the driver related to eMMC(sdhci, mmc), I can not find the difference between 10.1 and 10.4.
But, the strange thing is that first I use linux to boot system and reboot to switch OS to FreeBSD, it will...
I'm attempting to install FreeBSD 11.1 to check eMMC 5.0 compatibility via Intel SoC.
And I test it on different eMMC vendor

I've seen some posts showing success with HDMI audio output; however, I haven't had any luck with my system. I'm able to get video through HDMI and sound from the audio jack, but I haven't been able to get sound through the HDMI port itself.
If anyone has any additional troubleshooting...
I'm currently experimenting with FreeBSD on a Dell Optiplex 330, and I can't configure the video card. Here's the card seen by the Linux system on the machine.

I found an interesting mailing list post about the status of modern Radeon and Intel graphics support. To me, it looks like the GPUs that are currently "Not supported" here will finally be supported soon.
But how much time will it still take that they will be supported in FreeBSD-STABLE...
Hello FreeBSD community!
I installed FreeBSD-11 on ThinkPad T400 and now I'm trying to get Xorg to work.
This laptop has two graphic cards - integrated 4500MHD and discrete Radion HD 3470. The discrete card is working just fine (with radeon driver) if I select it in the BIOS as the only...
