Today, KFA2 announced the creation of the most unusual GTX460 variant we’ve seen to date. Designed with AMIMONS’s WHDI technology integrated into the card, this GTX460 has a whopping five antennas strapped to its end.
- Cores: 336
- Graphics clock speed: 675 MHz
- Processor clock speed: 1350 MHz
- Memory clock speed: 1800 MHz
- Memory: 1 GB
Using WHDI, the KFA2 GTX460 is designed to work up to 100 feet away, through walls and other obstructions. Since the WHDI uses HDCP encryption, it’s compatible with Blu-ray and other DRM-formatted video content.
As part of the package, KFA2 includes a WHDI receiver that can plug into most displays; the card also has DVI and DisplayPort ports located below the five antennas for users who want to hook the card directly to a monitor.
Pumping the video out over a 40 MHz spectrum range near 5 GHz, the GTX460 can reportedly deliver uncompressed 1080p video at 60 fps (which means, for those of you playing along at home, that while the GTX460 can do 3D, it won’t do 3D 1080p wirelessly).
Further information is something of a mystery at this point in time – there’s no word whether the card can support hybrid connections. That is, whether it can use one or two wired connections at the same time that it uses the WHDI interface.
Additionally, the most important specifications – price and availability – have yet to be announced. Given the high premium we’ve seen added to other wireless video devices, however, it’s unlikely that KFA2’s GTX460 will escape that luxurious tax.
