Intel HD Graphics 630

My system includes an Intel Core i5 7500 (Kaby Lake) CPU with Intel HD Graphics 630. Graphics performance under FreeBSD 11 is really bad (sluggish and visible issues like tearing). Is this a driver issue or can it be fixed with configuration? I'm running Xorg and Xfce with default configurations (using the intel driver).

I also tried Fedora 25 on the same system. I did not notice any issues there.

It's a driver issue. The FreeBSD intel driver is well behind the Linux ones.

The only way I've gotten one working--an older one than yours, the Haswell 4000--is to use CURRENT, then use the drm-next kernel. I describe it briefly in a page I have about the yoga2 (though I'm not sure the links in the page are still the latest). Anyway I describe using 12-CURRENT and the drm next at http://srobb.net/yoga2.html. Just do a search for drm-next on the page.

I tried 12-CURRENT as well as drm-next kernels and it does not work. My main issue was the HDMI sound does not work at all.
Video only worked with non-Intel drivers for Xorg. I used GUI like Mate and Gnome but no luck.
I shall just wait for freeBSD to catch up with Manjaro and other linuxes: very bad that a secure OS like freeBSD does not keep up with hardware.
I am now back on Linux on my home made PC.

I'm using 12-CURRENT kernel with graphics/drm-next-kmod and HD 630 is supported. I cannot get the HDMI audio working, but this does not matter to me.
Just install a 12-CURRENT kernel and install graphics/drm-next-kmod from ports.

Would that work fine for HD 620 aswell?

Im looking for to run it on a Huawei Matebook X (hd620)

Didn't notice this thread is a year old...

Running an HD630 and it is fine with the graphics/drm-kmod driver meta port. Running this on 12.0-RELEASE p1. I have an Intel i7-7700 Kaby Lake. Not a heavy gamer though: only run older (90's, early 2000's) games. Desktop performance is great.
