How do I use GD with a 800x480 display?

After calling GD.begin() you can set the scanout registers for 800x480 like this:

GD.wr16(vc.REG_HCYCLE, 928);
GD.wr16(vc.REG_HOFFSET, 88);
GD.wr16(vc.REG_HSIZE, 800);
GD.wr16(vc.REG_HSYNC0, 0);
GD.wr16(vc.REG_HSYNC1, 48);
GD.wr16(vc.REG_VCYCLE, 525);
GD.wr16(vc.REG_VOFFSET, 32);
GD.wr16(vc.REG_VSIZE, 480);
GD.wr16(vc.REG_VSYNC0, 0);
GD.wr16(vc.REG_VSYNC1, 3);
GD.wr16(vc.REG_CSPREAD, 1);
GD.wr16(vc.REG_DITHER, 1);
GD.wr16(vc.REG_PCLK_POL, 0);
GD.wr16(vc.REG_PCLK, 4);

How do I use GD with a 320x480 display?

There is a writeup here:
