Various display resolutions have been given names, the list below shows what I feel are the most common names with the respective resolutions – there are are plenty more but they are not in common usage:

  • QVGA: 320 x 240
  • VGA: 640 x 480 (VGA is also used a generic name for the ARGB input)
  • SVGA: 800 x 600
  • XGA: 1024 x 768
  • WXGA: 1280 x 768
  • SXGA: 1280 x 1024
  • UXGA: 1600 x 1200
  • WUXGA: 1920 x 1200
  • WQXGA: 2560 x 1600

Personally I prefer to stick with the actual resolution, it is less ambiguous.
