Beal's Conjecture Definition correct?

My kids and I were intrieged by Beal's Conjecture recently mentioned in the news. My youngest (12) and I decided to try and prove something using Python programming.

We got the following solution. Does this apply to the rules (if we understand them correctly)

2^8 + 4^4 = 8^3

A, B, C are not the same
x, y, z are not the same
x, y, z are larger than 2
256 and 512 have common prime factor of 2

Best regards
