Galaxy's mystery GTX 460 has WHDI

Written by Slobodan Simic

Wireless PC to TV connection

Galaxy's mysterious GTX 460 PCB design that we have seen a while back is actually a GF104 GTX 460 card with AMIMON's WHDI technology for some wireless PC to TV fun.

Previously pictured PCB had a Mini-PCIe connector on-board, something that wasn't seen before and although there has been a lot of speculation about additional PhysX dedicated GPU or TV Tuner, first pictures have finally shed some light regarding it.

The Mini-PCIe connector is used for AMIMON's WHDI technology that is capable of streaming HD content to a separate box that can be connected to the TV via a cable. The card features five antennas, DVI, DisplayPort and a mini-USB USB port on the backplate. The card hasn't yet been officially announced by Galaxy, but we guess the official announcement will come soon enough when we will have more details.

You can find more details here.

Not sure if I like that blue cooler on this bacon cooker.

nVidia can't do anything right.

since the device sizes(transisto rs here) are continuously shrinking,with all that real estate available manufactures are/can provide this sort of fancy/premium services.Some ppl here will quickly jump to "this feature is Useless by nvidia" conclusion ,but some ppl may find it appealing or in some business it will be appealing.

Well since I started using wireless mice and keyboards I wonder how I ever put up with wired. So a wireless monitor (OK still need a power cable, but wtf) would be nice.

I suppose it depends on the price point.

Yes, a company that serves millions of people with their products, can't do anything right because one person (that doesn't even seem to be their customer) doesn't like a cooler...

I swear...what happens in that "Idiocracy" movie is getting closer and closer...

For anybody worried about quality and latency, worry no more. Range is beyond 100 feet, through walls, and latency is less than one millisecond. This would be great for Home Theater as well as gaming.

It would have been nice to know what type of connections the receiver uses, neither this, nor the Expreview or Galaxy mention them/it.

I'm officially intrigued by it though, especially if it could be used with a traditional monitor via cable AND wirelessly with a TV.

I'm just afraid it will be limited somehow, either by the connections on the receiver or an either/or scenario with the wireless.
