Enhanced Graphics Adapter. An improvement on the CGA. Allowed the computer monitor to display more dots per screen permitting 400x300 pixels at 16 colours or 300x200 at 256 colours.
Extended Graphics Adaptor. A standard for a computer's display which has a definition of 640 x 350 dots (pixels) in 16 colours from a choice of 64.
Abbreviation of enhanced graphics adapter, a graphics display system for PCs introduced by IBM in 1984. EGA supports 16 colors from a palette of 64 and provides a resolution of 640 by 350. This is better than CGA but not as good as VGA. EGA is now obsolete.
Provides all of the graphics modes of the CGA, as well as additional high-resolution modes and sharper text. (7/96)
The standard that came after CGA and before VGA. It allowed resolutions up to 640x350 pixels and 16 colors from a palette of 64. It was soon replaced by...
Extended Graphics Adapter. Successor to the CGA as the IBM PC graphics standard. Capable of a maximum resolution of 640x350 pixel s in 16 simultaneous colors from a total of 64 possible colors. Itself succeeded by the VGA standard.

extended graphics array, a display mode of 480 x 320 dots
An nhanced raphics dapter is an IBM video display adapter that can be used with color and enhanced color displays. It also provides a monochrome graphics mode. In color it can produce characters in a dot box of 8 by 14 pixels when used with an enhanced color display. The EGA operates at a horizontal scan rate of 21.85 MHz, and can display 16 colors from a palette of 64 at a resolution of 640 by 350 pixels. To be fully EGA compatible, a video display monitor must have a bandwidth of at least 16 MHz.
A graphics standard for the PC which can be added or built into a system to give sharper characters and improved colour with the correct display device. Standard EGA resolution is 640 by 350 dots in any 16 out of 64 colours.
Extended Graphics Adapter, an old video type with maximum 640 x 350 resolution
Enhanced Graphics Array. The second generation of the CGA card giving IBM PCs, XTs and ATs greater resolution (640 x 350). Now almost obsolete.
Enhanced Graphics Adaptor
AKA Enhanced Graphics Array, EGA is an image which displays 640 pixels by 350 lines with 16 colors from a palette of 64 colors.
a medium-resolution graphics mode featuring up to 640x350 resolution, 16 colour operation; commonly available in older applications.
Even better than the CGA card, but still a DOS-era graphics card. The resolution used to 320x200 up to 640x200 - 16 colors. See als (S)VGA and CGA.
enhanced graphics adapter; EGA was the successor to the original GA video standard on IBM and IBM-compatible computers. EGA adapters can display text or graphics in 16 colors on monitors compatible with EGA. EGA adapters are also capable of displaying smaller type (24 lines on any screen), which allows much larger passages of text on any screen.
Enhanced Graphics Array. This is the second generation of the CGA standard that it gave PCs, XTs and ATs greater resolution (640 x 350 in all models). Like CGA, it is virtually obsolete.
The Enhanced Graphics Adapter.
Enhanced Graphics Adapter: the IBM standard for colour displays prior to the VGA standard. It specified a resolution of 640x350 with up to 256 colours and a 9-pin (DB-9) connector.
Extended Graphics Adapter; a card (or board) usually found in older PCs that enables the monitor to display 640 pixels horizontally and 350 vertically.
Enhanced Graphics Adapter. A graphics adapter card that improved on the CGA (Color Graphics Adapter) and was superseded by the VGA (Video Graphics Adapter).
Enhanced Graphics Adapter. High resolution IBM graphics standard capable of displaying 640 x 350 pixels in 16 colors out of a palette of 64 colors.
Enhanced Graphics Adapter. A video adapter standard that provides medium-resolution text and graphics, introduced by IBM in 1984. EGA can display 16 colors at the same time from a choice of 64, with a horizontal resolution of 640 pixels and a vertical resolution of 350 pixels.
Enhanced Graphics Adapter - A display system capable of rendering sixteen different colours improving the CGA system with a maximum resolution of 640 pixels horizontally by 350 pixels vertically.
Enhanced Graphics Adapter. A type of PC video display adapter first introduced by IBM in September of 1984. The maximum resolution is 640x350 pixels in 16 colors. This is outdated technology and has been replaced by VGA.
Enhanced Graphics Adapter. A high resolution video card manufactured by IBM in 1984 that has more colours (16 from a palette of 64), and obeys the computer much faster than the older video cards, such as the colour/graphics adapter (CGA). EGA canrds can produce a resolution of 640 horizontal pixels by 350 vertical pixels, which is not quite as capable as the video graphics array (VGA) card with 640 by 480 resolution but better than the CGA card with 320 by 200 resolution.
Enhanced Graphics Adapter. Introduced by IBM in 1984, this replaced CGA (Color Graphics Adapter).

Enhanced Graphics Adapter. A high resolution video card that came out after CGA. It was manufactured by IBM and could produce a resolution of 640 X 350 pixels and display 16 colors out of a palette of 64.
Enhanced Graphic Adapter. Ancient video standard allowing graphical color display ( resolution 640x340 in monochrome).
Refers to an Enchanced Graphics Adapter.
Enhanced Graphics Adapter (IBM). Precursor to VGA, all EGA video modes are supported in VGA, though register compatibility is not 100%. EGA cards generate a digital signal, and thus will not drive a modern, analog monitor.
