    Abbreviation of color/graphics adapter, an old graphics system for PCs. Introduced in 1981 by IBM, CGA was the first color graphics system for IBM PCs. Designed primarily for computer games, CGA does not produce sharp enough characters for extended editing sessions. CGA’s highest-resolution mode is 2 colors at a resolution of 640 by 200.

    CGA has been superseded by VGA systems.
