## Additional Resolutions[edit]

Should the following be merged into the current monitor resolution table?

Computer Standard | Resolution | Ratio | Ratio (Decimal) | Pixels |
---|---|---|---|---|

SXGA- (succeeds XGA+) | 1280×960 | 4:3 | 1.3333 | 1.2M |

QXGA | 2048×1536 | 4:3 | 1.3333 | 3.1M |

WQXGA | 2560×1600 | 16:10 | 1.6 | 4.1M |

QSXGA | 2560×2048 | 5:4 | 1.25 | 5.2M |

WQSXGA | 3200×2048 | 25:16 | 1.5625 | 6.6M |

QUXGA | 3200×2400 | 4:3 | 1.3333 | 7.7M |

WQUXGA | 3840×2400 | 16:10 | 1.6 | 9.2M |

HXGA | 4096×3072 | 4:3 | 1.3333 | 12.6M |

WHXGA | 5120×3200 | 16:10 | 1.6 | 16.4M |

HSXGA | 5120×4096 | 5:4 | 1.25 | 21M |

WHSXGA | 6400×4096 | 25:16 | 1.5625 | 26M |

HUXGA | 6400×4800 | 4:3 | 1.3333 | 31M |

## Impossible percentages[edit]

In this chart we show a negative percentage as a comparison value between two whole integers. It's mathematical nonsense. It should be fixed, I will look at this later and try to correct when I have some time. —fudoreaper (talk) 10:10, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

- It's not necessarily nonsense. Depends on how exactly you're reading the table; specifically, which resolution (the one in the row or the one in the column) you're taking the percentage of. For instance, for WXGA and WUXGA, the -120% means that the difference from WUXGA to WXGA is -120% of WXGA's pixel count; the - sign means that WUXGA is larger. It's perhaps a bit unintuitive, but not nonsense.
- If consensus is that this should be changed, then the fix is to simply flip the percentages across the diagonal, preserving the signs. So the -120% for WXGA and WUXGA would become -54%, meaning that WXGA (the row) = WUXGA (the column) - 54% of WUXGA. And across the diagonal would be +120%, meaning that WUXGA (the row) = WXGA (the column) + 120% of WXGA. Now that I'm typing it out, that does make more sense.
- Another option is to show the percentage of the two resolutions, not the difference between them. So WXGA would be 46% of WUXGA, and WUXGA would be 220% of WXGA. Then the signs wouldn't be needed at all. Indrek (talk) 11:31, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

- Thanks for the work on this. The chart looks reasonable and understandable to me now. Good work! —fudoreaper (talk) 20:40, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
