World’s First Wireless Graphics Card
Ever since there were computers to speak of, monitor displays always had to be connected to the CPU tower via the means of cables and connectors. This looks to be the thing of the past with the world’s first wireless graphics card, the KFA2 GeForce GTX460 WHDI wireless graphics card.
The setup consists of the graphics card with wireless transmitter sitting in the CPU tower like usual while a wireless receiver is plugged into the HDMI port of a display screen such as a HDTV or computer monitor. Once the pairing is complete, graphics will be streamed wirelessly to the display monitor through the air.
An advantage from adopting this setup is the greater flexibility in the arrangement of the computer components in rooms for various purposes such as entertainment or gaming without having to stick to the constraints of cable length or deal with a messy room. This can be achieved since computer peripherals such as wireless mice and keyboards have already become so common nowadays.
Finally we’re closing in on saying goodbye to monitor cables forever. The dawn of the age of the wireless graphics card is a godsend for those who hate messy cables. Now the next thing we really need is for humanity to perfect wireless power transmission technology.
