What are the 100% Freebsd compatible arm cards but which have ethernet gbit, sata and hdmi?
Is Raspberry fully compatible? can you use Xorg without problems?
Unlike Raspberry which others?
Thank you.

The raspberry Pi is considered a Tier II architecture on FreeBSD, so they'd just say it's a work-in-progress, and maybe not yet 100% "compatible" - to use your term.

https://wiki.freebsd.org/FreeBSD/arm/Raspberry Pi

Several other boards work, but some only in serial console mode. As far as the Pi goes, I have run Xorg successfully on the Pi2, but for the Pi3 I think there have been periods of time where it was not functioning. Like I said, it's a very fluid work-in-progress. I have used the Odroid C1 with FreeBSD, but it was a major hoop-jumping affair. I think some folks have used Beagle boards and Orange Pi boards as well, but I don't know how the Xorg works on those boards.

NetBSD works on a few additional boards, but that of course is not relevant to your question.

BTW: Welcome to the forum!
