Really? I haven't used NetBSD in recent years, but there used to be the "nv" driver which provided excellent 2D performance.

The "nv" driver is pretty much discontinued by nVidia (..if you've followed recent event).

For older graphics cards, "nv" is an option for 2D/Xvideo but not for newer ones.
