The minimum system requirements are Kichstart3.1, a 68020-CPU and 4MB of FastRAM and 2MB free in the ZorroII address space. The maximum screen resolutions are 16.7M -color up to 800×600, 64k-colors up to 1024×768 and 8bit color up to 1280×1024. All modes are non-interlaced with a minimum refresh rate of 60 Hz.
The card is currently using the Piccolo SD64 driver from the P96-rtg solution. The P96 driver is shareware and not bundled with this board. A separate license for this driver should be purchased.
