The display industry has advanced dramatically over the years, and monitors with 2K, 4K, and 8K resolutions are not uncommon these days. In the late 90s and early 2000s, the 1024 x 768 was the most common resolution used. Today, the most commonly used display resolution is 1920 x 1080. The ratio between the horizontal and vertical has changed from 4:3 to 16:9, and the 16:9 aspect ratio is the new normal used on most monitors today.
The following display standards have evolved into the current resolutions.
There are so many variations of horizontal and vertical displays, and the name and standard overlaps with minor pixel differences. We generally use 2K with a monitor having roughly 2,000 horizontal pixels, 3K with 3,000 pixels, 5K with 5,000 pixels and so on.
