Oh yes, you read it right. Premium Nvidia Graphics card maker KFA2 has just announced the world’s first wireless graphics card, based on Nvidia’s GTX460 chip.

So, with wireless k/b, mouse, speakers, network, display, the only reason to have cables is power. Don’t ask me the price of this beast as I me too am waiting to see it hit the market.
