The Creator3D supports higher resolutions, the Elite3D tops out at 
1280x1024.  The Elite seems to be a bit faster at 2D operations, and is 
much faster for OpenGL (until you start using textures, anyways, it's 
really designed as a CAD card).  The m6 has twice as many geometry engines 
as the m3 and correspondingly higher OpenGL performance for the 
appropriate operations.
