Unfortunately, there is currently no support for NVidia hardware.

Peeter Must has started to port the Linux vga_switcheroo module in order
to switch the active GPU on dual-GPUs machines but this currently only
works on his machine (a circa 2008 Macbook if I'm not mistaken).

Getting GPU switching to work reliably on most machines will be a difficult
task but not an impossible one.
Feel free to drop by #dragonflybsd at efnet and have a chat with the
developers if you think you can help :-)
