It's identical, apart from the 520 version having an 'X' between 'Set 
Alias$VIDCBandLimit' and 'VIDCBandwidthLimit' in the first line, which 
the 517 version didn't. The contents:

Set Alias$VIDCBandLimit X VIDCBandwidthLimit 2000000000 2000000000 
2000000000
VIDCBandLimit
Set PreDesk$Configure <Obey$Dir>.Monitor
/BootResources:Configure.ClrMonitor
/<PreDesk$Configure>

Deleting the 'X' made no difference. Nor did amending the accompanying 
'Monitor' obey file with the required WimpMode X and Y values.

No.
