Cool wireless video card.

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/hardware/2011/01/12/kfa2-announces-cab...


"KFA2 Announces Cable-Free Graphics Card

Galaxy sub-brand KFA2 has announced a graphics card with no display outputs. Instead, the KFA2 GTX 460 WHDI uses a wireless link to send the display output from your PC to your screen – whether that’s a conventional monitor or the HD TV in your lounge.

You just need to attach the bundled receiver to the back of your chosen screen and you’re done. With a wireless keyboard and mouse, you could place your PC at the other end of the room, letting you crank up those fans without having to listen to the whirring next to you.

The ‘WHDI’ part of the card’s name comes from the fact that it uses Amimon’s wireless technology – WHDI stands for Wireless Home Digital Interface.

The standard uses the 40MHz channel of the unlicensed 5GHz radio frequency band to deliver uncompressed 1080p video at 60Hz wirelessly. The card uses five aerials, which KFA2 says will provide ‘the most robust and highest quality HD wireless connection for in-room and multi-room applications.’

WHDI has a range of 30m (around 100ft for those still working in Imperial), and can work through obstacles and walls. This, says KFA2, provides a ‘hassle-free way to connect sources anywhere within a room or enable multiple connections.’ The WHDI standard supports HDCP 2.0, so it can route protected content (Blu-ray films, for example) without a problem.

Aside from having aerials rather than display outputs, the card is a typical GeForce GTX 460 1GB affair. It supports Nvidia’s PhysX and CUDA technologies, and it's DirectX 11-compatible.

At the same time, KFA2 has also announced its single-slot GeFore GTX 460 1GB card, the GTX 460 Razor. This card also boasts the typical clock speeds, despite its single-slot cooler. The GPU runs at 675MHz (with the 336 stream processors operating at twice that rate), while the 1GB of GDDR5 memory runs at 900MHz (3.6GHz effective).

Both cards are due to be on sale soon throughout Europe, and both are backed by a two-year warranty."

Hey gang, I just happened upon this group when I searched "programming." I'm a CIS major getting ready to graduate this December. I'm looking forward to working in a field where I can actually use my brain! Anyway, it's good to be here. What's up fellow geeks?

Frenglishman, fret not. When asked to help, I think it best to apply all of one' s applicable skills. cleaning up code where it will help the entire project, or showing how to do a few things with a database, so that it is like a mentoring experience and not a mere demonstration of superior skills.
