Techopedia explains Wide Extended Graphics Array (WXGA)
Other variants included 1360×768, which provided a significantly lower memory requirement from over 1 MB (1024.5 KB per channel) for the 1366 variant to just 1020 KB, which is a value just slightly lower than the full 1024 KB of a whole megabyte. This meant that VRAM chips used in smaller resolution displays can still be used to keep manufacturing costs lower because it fits exactly into that chip category rather than having to move to the next larger value chips of 2 MB or 4 MB, which cost more and produce only a very slight and unnoticeable difference in pixels.
In 2006, WXGA was the most popular resolution for LCD televisions, but in 2013 and later it got relegated to low-end screens and bedroom televisions as the industry shifted to Full HD resolution of 1920×1080 and beyond toward Quad HD (4k).
