I agree until Intel implements a solution that will only use a considerably smaller potion of the CPU this isn't going to be a viable option for many scenarios in which this technology could have been implemented. A prime example of this is any game that is CPU intensive, this would be absolutely unusable by anyone in that situation. I also believe that this should be implemented as an external component allowing for after-market application of this technology to systems. This would allow for the use of this technology in already purchased computers, not just a select few laptops that will be in stores in a week or so.
Barence writes "Intel has launched a new display technology called Wi-Di at CES. Intel Wireless Display uses Wi-Fi to wirelessly transmit video from PCs running Intel's latest generation of Core processors to HD television sets. Televisions will require a special adapter made by companies such as Netgear — which will cost around $100 — to receive the wireless video signals. Intel also revealed its optical interconnect technology, Light Peak, will be in PCs 'in about a year.'"
