XGA eXtended Graphics Adapter. Originally an IBM standard for display modes in the resolution of 1024 X 768 pixels.

XGA was created in the early 1990's by IBM. MCA-based XGA graphics adapters was used in the fine PS/2 computers and the system was extremely good with Windows 3.1 and later 95. In 1994 I wrote an article in the Danish ComputerWorld arguing that IBM should license the XGA chipset to other vendors, so it could find use in PCI based systems.

Today XGA is used as term for resolutions of 1024 X 768 pixels and better.
