Samsung USB-Only LCD

Samsung is readying an addition to its SyncMaster displays that will rely solely on USB, according to a claim by DigitalWorld. Known only as the 940UX, the 19-inch LCD would toss aside both DVI and VGA connectors to plug into a computer's USB port. Instead of relying on a graphics chipset, the display would use the CPU to power its video. This would have the advantage of allowing as many LCDs as the computer's USB ports and performance will allow, according to the French news outlet.

The 940UX is scheduled for an introduction at the CeBIT show in mid-March. No pricing has leaked in advance, but the new monitor will likely run only on Windows XP and Vista systems at first due to the need for special drivers.
