Intel "Intel has provided the first hands-on demonstration of a laptop running its Light Peak technology, at the company's inaugural European research showcase here in Brussels. Light Peak is an optical interconnect that can transfer data at 10Gbits/sec in both directions. Intel hopes Light Peak will one day replace the host of other PC interconnects, including USB, DisplayPort and HDMI. The demonstration laptop was sending two separate HD video streams to a nearby television screen, without any visible lag."

I have trouble seeing how any geek, no matter how hardcore, could have both the space and the need for more than a 2x2 grid of 1920x1080 monitors and that's the upper limit of what a single DisplayPort cable can drive.


And then, BOOM, along comes 3D video implemented as a 1920x1080x512 pixel scene. ;)
