Video timings[edit]

Expansion required: what are the actual video timings for each text video mode - interlaced or progressive, sync polarity, blank intervals, etc. --Dmitry (talkcontibs ) 14:01, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

"A text mode signal may have the same timings than VESA standard modes." I guess it should be "the same timings as" Slidercrank (talk) 09:08, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes, my grammar mistake. WP:SOFIXIT. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 11:46, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Modern, Recent, Latest[edit]

Please avoid such terms, or qualify them with actual dates (e.g. "modern (2010-2013) video cards"). Write the article so that it will still make sense when someone reads it in 5 or 10 years. 31.52.29.34 (talk) 03:06, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

“Modern” means roughly since 1996. It is contrasted to the “classical” VGA (both for PS/2 and PC) and its early derivatives (so named SVGA cards and some others). Where the article says anything about “latest”? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 11:46, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
