Depends on your definition of "high-res".
Silicon Graphics certainly had megapixel and higher for cad work, etc.
For PC, though, "Wyse WY-700"/"Amdek 1280" at 1280 x 800 monochrome was
state of the art, and "super-VGA" was moving upwards from 800 x 600.
Twenty-FIVE years ago, EGA was considered hot.
THIRTY years ago, CCTV monitors and home TV sets.
