Wireless display to get better
Intel's second generation of Core products based on Sandy Bridge platform has Wireless display that finally supports full 1080p HD.

Of course we are talking about Huron River, a Sandy Bridge-powered platform. The first generation of Wireless display was capable of 720p and it naturally got better with the new generation.

Intel plans to add HDCP 2.0 content protection as well as 5.1 surround support for its wireless display and this is expected to happen before back to school. This time frame usually targets late July and August as this is the time when most students usually get new notebooks.

It will be available worldwide at launch and while and it sounds to us like Intel will simply do a software update to make this happen, we are short on these details.

The new update also promises full Blu-Ray support for the back to school period.
