I think the TGX+ have 4MB VRAM and the TGX have 1MB. 

From the Framebuffer FAQ :
"The TGX/TGX+ are compatible with the GX/GX+ but are faster and support
more resolutions. (The T stands for Turbo). The GX/TGX have 1Mb of
on-board memory, which gives them a maximum resolution of 1152x900. The
GX+/TGX+ have 4Mb of memory, which is used for double-buffering and
optimisation, and has a maximum supported resolution of 1600x1280."

I guess you need a 4MB part.
