Three problems: it demands an Intel-architecture CPU (why on earth
would it care what the CPU is?!), it demands Windows, and it demands an
obscene amount of RAM (why would it care how much RAM there is?!).

Useless as far as I can tell; I couldn't find any obvious
documentation, at least. (It can have all the whizzy hardware it
wants, but if I don't know how to access it, it's useless. Like the
transform engine I understand the cg6 has, or the acceleration I
understand the cg14 has....) At least it doesn't say it's
Intel-architecture-only or Windows-only, but as it doesn't say it's not
this could just be an accidental omission on their part.

When I spoke of seeing 1600x1280 running, it's possible what I saw was
actually 1600x1200. When I spoke of having a monochrome 1600x1280
monitor and using it until it went dim on me, that was 1600x1280.
