Video Resolution

ZX Spectrum - 256 x 192 (15 colors)

The ZX Spectrum could display a total of 15 colors (there were actually 16 colors: 8 colors each with both low intensity and high intensity variations. However, black remained black in both the low intensity and high intensity versions, so in practice only 15 colors were visible). Only two colors per block of 8x8 pixels was possible, and low intensity and high intensity colors couldn't be mixed in a single block. This limitation lead to the Spectrum's famous color clash appearance with its graphics.
