I'm not Raphael, but I can field this one.
Newer Intel chipsets have integrated GPUs. These GPUs use Kernel
Mode Switching, which FreeBSD does not support (yet; work is being
done on it.) A lot of newer laptops use the Intel integrated GPUs,
apparently KDE has made support of them a priority.
If you don't have one of these Intel chipsets, it shouldn't have any
effect whatsoever. Except that KDE requires a higher version of Mesa
DRI then FreeBSD currently supports.
DRI 7.11 is in the xorg-dev repository, but that's also where work is
being done on the xorg "intel" driver. That driver isn't even close to
production level yet, and requires you to be on 9-Beta 3 or newer.
