This is for Macs made after they went to internal display adaptors. The chips
were developed for the LC, and then used in all Macs. AFAIK, the first Mac II
to use it was the IIci. So the II, IIx, IIcx, etc did not and only had
a few resolutions, while the IIci,IIsi, all the Quadras and all the PPC Macs
