Yep, the Sun docs claim 1152x900 at 24bpp, but it'll also do 1600x1200 at 16
(which is what I use under NetBSD on an U5 with the same onboard ATI
RagePro). FWIW, I'm not sure if Solaris on SPARC supports 16-bit colour.

I used to use an U1/170E w/Creator3D as my workstation for a while, running
Solaris 8 and 9. Underrated machines those.
