It's neither square nor 2:1.  If we calculate it the simple way, applying
a 4:3 screen aspect ratio to a resolution of 160x200, we get a pixel
width:height ratio of 5:3 or 1.667:1.  That's a bit chunky, but a full
2600 screen can be displayed at that ratio in an 800x600 window.

2:1 is indeed closer to reality than 1:1 is.
