Galaxy Adding Wireless HD to GeForce GTX 460

Galaxy Microsystems announced on Thursday that it implemented AMIMON’s WHDI technology into its latest Galaxy GTX 460 graphics card. The new WHDI Edition, shipping in October, will allow consumers to stream HD content and games wirelessly to their HDTV from the PC.

"Gamers and PC users alike want to take the PC games and content from a small monitor to the superior image of an HDTV," said Alex Lam, CEO of Galaxy Microsystems Ltd.  "Fusing Galaxy’s high-performance graphics cards with AMIMON’s WHDI technology provides gamers and consumers with the highest quality wireless HD video connection."

According to Galaxy, AMIMON’s WHDI technology has no noticeable latency, estimated at less than one millisecond, making it suitable for most PC gaming. The card also contains five antennas which wirelessly connect to a stand-alone receiver plugged into the HDTV. This allows the user to place the PC anywhere in the room without the need for stringing cables across the floor.

Unfortunately, Galaxy didn’t release any specs on the card—the main focus was primarily set on the wireless HD content. However based on provided images, users can still connect the card to a monitor or HDTV using DVI and HDMI outputs.

Although the Galaxy GTX 460 WHDI Edition ships in October, pricing was not provided. Expect more info--hardware specs and actual availability--to appear in the coming weeks.

    Wow all that data going through the air?! THROUGH OUR BRAINS! omg this is gonna cause cancer and brain tumours and all that bullshit people keep claiming happens when waves travel through our brains.

    Heads up people, the Universe is pumping millions of Radio waves and other types of radiation through our head every millisecond, yet we're all fine =O.

    This is an awesome idea btw, this is the future man. Love it, want it, can't afford it, damn it.
