3M Showcases USB 3.0 Powered Monitor

We’ve seen USB-powered displays before, but how many of those were powered by USB 3.0 connections? 3M has unveiled its new monitor technology, showcasing an 18.5-inch 1366 x 768 pixel display that is powered by dual USB 3.0 ports. With USB 3.0’s 5 Gbit/s bandwidth, there’ll be more room for high-definition pictures when compared to the 480Mbit/s of USB 2.0. The reason that two USB 3.0 ports are used is due to a single USB 3.0 port offering 7W, while this monitor needs 8W, which is still a lot less than your standard monitor. Do you think we’ll all be using USB 3.0 displays in the future?
