What is the maximum supported resolution of VGA cables?

Asked by warpling (841 points ) January 10th, 2010

I’ve been researching projectors for awhile now and I’m shopping in the XGA resolution range (1024×768), but a lot of the projectors I see only come with a VGA and component port. What’s the deal? I thought VGA only supported up to 800×600. Are these projectors upscaling the input image or what?

I have an LCD monitor connected via a VGA connector which has a resolution of 1024×768 so I doubt you’ll have any problems.

The external monitor on my iMac is connected with VGA. It is running at 1440×900.

And after some time with Google it seems like you just got some bad info. I wouldn’t worry.

Cables don’t care. Personally, I’ve gone up to 2048×1536 through a VGA cable.
