i3-500 sounds like something with the new on-CPU-die GPU.
Everything that new needs a xf86-video-intel that's currently
incompatible with NetBSD.  Well, at least until we port/implement
GEM and KMS in our kernel ...

It seems OpenBSD has implemented GEM in their drm(4)/inteldrm(4), and
restored UMS into a version of xf86-video-intel.
