Everything else in your computer’s going wireless, so why not that display connection? And now it has with the KFA2 GeForce GTX460, a graphics card with its display ports ripped out and replaced with a bunch of data-streaming antennas.
Billed as the world’s first wireless graphics card, it uses Amimon’s Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI), which uses the 40Mhz channel of the 5GHz radio frequency to send video output wirelessly. Five aerials in the back will capably stream uncompressed 1080p video at 60Hz to a base station tethered to your monitor or HDTV.
Aside from the wireless update, the KFA2 GeForce GTX460 sounds like a standard graphics card that crams into your motherboard’s PCIe slot, with 1GB of onboard memory, clocking in at 675MHz for the graphics and 1,350MHz for the processor. It’s got all the usual features you’ll expect out of a modern GPU – DirectX11, PhysX, PureVideo HD, SLI-ready and 3D Vision-ready.
Video can be streamed from your desktop up to 100 feet, even to the TV sitting behind the wall in the other room. The card implements HDCP Rev. 2.0, which enables wireless viewing of all PC content on the TV — even Blu-Ray movies and DRM-protected media.
