Welcome to WordPress 5.0 icons are poor quality

After updating to the development version of WordPress 5.0, I've noticed that the icons throughout the page are of very poor quality. Is this a compression issue? They'd be much better in SVG format in this case.

Hello @LiamMcArthur, welcome to WordPress Trac and thanks for your report!

Can you provide some details about your OS, screen, and browser? Can you see which image is loaded?

I can reproduce this if I set browser tools to load 1x images. For the sake of keeping discussion to one ticket, I'm closing this in favour of continuing on #45178.

The problem only occurs on larger, desktop browsers at 1x resolution. The image needs replacing with a higher quality image.

Just take a look at the 1x and retina version of one of the images here:
