NetBSD-8 and graphics cards

Hi, I'm having a lot of issues with getting Xorg running on NetBSD-8. I
tried two nvidia cards:

Quadro NVS 295 - Xorg says No devices detected
Geforce GT 710 - NetBSD fails to boot and stops with kernel panic

I've gone back to an old PCI card with ATI Rage 128, but this also
doesn't work with Xorg

[    82.232] (--) Using wscons driver on /dev/ttyE4 in pcvt
compatibility mode (version 3.32) [    82.232] (--) using VT number 5
[    82.241] (EE) No devices detected.
[    82.241] (EE) 
Fatal server error:
[    82.241] (EE) no screens found(EE) 

I normally run Xorg -configure and copy config file
to /etc/X11/xorg.conf

dmesg with ATI Rage 128:

vga0 at pci6 dev 4 function 0: vendor 1002 product 5245 (rev. 0x00)
wsdisplay0 at vga0 kbdmux 1: console (80x25, vt100 emulation)
wsmux1: connecting to wsdisplay0
drm at vga0 not configured

Any idea why ATI Rage 128 does not work? I'm sure
it used to be supported for years with previous NetBSD versions. Am I
doing something wrong or DRM code does not support this card?
Is there a way to disable DRM and revert to old behavior?

Are there any recent discrete graphics cards that work with NetBSD
DRM/KMS and Xorg?
