  Computer display standard
Various computer display standards or display modes have been used in the history of the personal computer.
They are often a combination of resolution (specified as the width and height in pixels), colour depth measured in bits, and refresh rate expressed in hertz.

Various computer display standards or display modes have been used in the history of the personal computer.
They are often a combination of display resolution (specified as the width and height in pixels), colour depth (measured in bits), and refresh rate (expressed in hertz).
Earlier display adapters were simple frame-buffers, but later display standards also specified a more extensive set of display functions and software controlled interface.

Modern GPUs are very efficient at manipulating and displaying computer graphics, and their highly-parallel structure makes them more effective than typical CPUs for a range of complex algorithms.
Some GPUs could run several operations in a display list, and could use DMA to reduce the load on the host processor; an early example of the was the ANTIC co-processor used in the Atari 800 and Atari 5200.
The Amiga was the first mass-market computer to include a blitter in its video hardware, and IBM's 8514 graphics system was one of the first PC video cards to implement 2D primitives in hardware.

 SGI - Silicon Graphics F181: Terminology
A field emitter display consists of an array of microtips (at a density of thousands beneath each pixel), each of which is essentially a miniature CRT in a vacuum envelope.
Display systems generally have inherent nonlinearities in how they reproduce this tone data; these nonlinearities are called natural or "native" gamma.
The baseline ANSI/TIA/EIA-644 standard, approved in November 1995, serves as a foundation for the specific implementation of LVDS as an interface to digital displays and is the current notebook computer digital display standard.

The ability to display a combination of readable text and monochrome graphics is sufficient for many applications, so many users find the HGC an economic option.
The VGA is capable of higher display resolution modes such as 720 dot wide by 400 dot high in text modes, or 640 dot wide by 480 dot high in graphics modes.
Because there was no common standard for these extra modes the card manufacturers would have to provide their own unique software drivers so that these modes could be used with the popular software packages.
