I bought a laptop. I'm going to use this computer to run only FreeBSD. But I don't know if the hardware driver supports it!

If you know this information, you can tell me! Thank you very much!

You won't know for sure until you try to install/run FreeBSD on it

We have one probe of such computer in the Linux database, so we can get exact ID of the devices on board. 802.11ac is not supported yet by FreeBSD, so WiFi module will operate in the N mode instead. Same WiFi and Bluetooth modules you can find in this probe of ASUS GL553VE - they work fine (with FreeBSD 13-CURRENT). The graphics card is well supported by amdgpu.
