The Unigine Tropics performance with FreeBSD 9.1 was on par with Ubuntu Linux
and Windows 8. Of course, this is only with the NVIDIA FreeBSD driver. AMD doesn't
have any Catalyst driver for FreeBSD (or any other BSD distribution) and their
open-source Radeon Linux graphics driver is still in the process of being ported
to FreeBSD. Intel's open-source Linux graphics driver was already ported from
Linux (and merged in FreeBSD 9.1), but that support obviously lacks behind the
Intel Linux driver.
