What's TIGI by the way?

English translation:The computer can be driven by the TIGI utility.
Explanation:
As for "TIGI," no web searches have turned up anything plausible. However, a majority of today's graphics chips are made by a single company, Texas Instruments, which has a proprietary graphics architecture (the Texas Instruments Graphics Architecture, or TIGA). It is just barely possible that "TIGI" is either a misspelling, or the abbreviation of "Texas Instruments Graphics Interface." Mind you, this is just a semi-educated guess!

Explanation:
no word suggested. texas instruments has an online glossary. I lost the bookmark recently when I had to reinstall my software because of a system problem I was having. you should be able to find it. It may help. The title was "semicondutors " or something. I hope that helps.
