EGA - PC's

In 1984, IBM introduced the Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA) display. It allowed up to 16 different colors and improved the resolution to 640 pixels horizontally by 350 pixels vertically. This improved the appearance of the display and made it possible to read text more easily than with CGA. Nevertheless, EGA did not offer sufficient image resolution for high-level applications such as graphic design and desktop publishing.
