vaxstation graphics

Could somebody give me a quick rundown of the differences in capabilities
between GPX and SPX graphics on a VAXstation 3100, and how I might tell
which I've actually got?

According to the emblem on the front of the machine, I have an
SPX-equipped unit. As I understand it this is what passes for
'top-of-the-line' graphics on the 3100.

After the initial mix-up when I received the machine without any add-on
graphics card, I was sent what was supposed to be the proper SPX card for
the unit.

Just the other day I happened to notice that 'show version' or some
similar 'show' command in UCX indicated I had a 3100 with GPX graphics.
Now I'm no longer sure what's what.

Could somebody set me straight?
