It is said that FreeBSD tends to use the first video card (Intel in case
of "Optimus" systems) and ignore the second one (NVidia), so the users
have to edit Xorg configuration to use second video card.  It is also
said that bootloader is only capable of using the first one.  So most
likely the question of video cards in this particular case boils down to
amount of support for Intel card.
