depends on what you consider (non) hdpi ... the positioning of glyphs 
depends on font scale, rounding of stems and such (hints in fonts but 
these get less relevant with high res displays), caching, inter glyph 
corrections (that pdftex/luatex/...) put in the text stream to resync 
within certain tolerances, etc ... (often a print is a better reference 
as displays are seldom 600+ dpi) .. it's also why often expansion looks 
bad on screen because even a sub percentage difference can give such
