Does The World Really Need A Wireless Graphics Card?

It would seem the answer is a tentative "yes", with the release of the KFA2 GeForce GTX460 graphics card.

Those spindly extensions are Wi-Fi antennas, meaning the card can transmit its video signal over thin air. Why, you may ask, would I want to do that? The thinking is that it lets people separate their monitors from their computers, so all you need to work is a screen and a mouse/keyboard, and not the whole kit and kaboodle.

While that may sound a bit stupid, there are a few scenarios where it'd come in handy. Like a media centre rig where you don't have enough power outlets for a TV setup (along with consoles and sound) and a PC. Or if you want a monitor somewhere you wouldn't want a computer lying around, like the kitchen or a workshop.

    Judging by the picture of the package contents, you still need an extra powerpoint to plug in the receiver - a powerpoint with space for a big fat transformer.

    Yep. Until there is wireless power this doesn't make much sense. Kudos for cool tech tho !
