KFA2 combines Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 with WHDI

Europe’s KFA2—KFA stands for “Kick Friggin’ Ass” and is a premium brand of Galaxy—has decided that the Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 is a pretty nice video card—but what would be better is if users didn’t have to deal with any cables. To that end, they’ve melded the GTZ 460 with WHDI technology from Amimon to produce what it’s calling the world’s first wireless graphics card: the KFA2 GeForce GTX 460 WHDI. Instead of relying on DVI, DisplayPort, or HDMI outputs, KFA2’s creation sports five wireless antennas designed to push high-definition (and high-performance) video to a receiver connected to a display or HDTV up to 30 meters away—and that includes beaming through walls.

Amimon’s WHDI technology relies on a 40 MHz channel in the unlicensed 5GHz band to send video: the frequency means that the technology won’t interfere with Wi-Fi networks or cordless phones. The technology also includes HDCP 2.0, meaning all that content being transmitted wirelessly is still protected from piracy. KFA2 mainly seems to view the card as a solution for people who want to have a home theater PC in one room and push high-def (or even 3D) content to an HDTV in another location, but the card is a full-fledged GTX 460: that means it supports DirectX11, OpenGL 3.0, sports 336 processor cores and comes with 1 GB of video memory. And, of course, the card ships with a WHDI receiver that connects to the remote display or HDTV.

Of course, the downside to the system is that KFA2 is a European-exclusive brand of Galaxy…and KFA2 isn’t exactly being forthcoming with pricing information. But for folks who are in the market for this technology, price may not be a tremendous consideration.
