Samsung 940UX Ships

Samsung today announced it was shipping the US version of the 940UX, the company's first display to offer USB as an alternative to conventional video input. The 19-inch screen draws on both its own hardware as well as the CPU power of a host PC to drive the display without the use of an internal video card. Even a notebook can run up to six of the displays if its processing power is fast enough, according to Samsung's technical details. Both DVI and VGA connections let any computer or device use the 940UX without the performance overhead.

The new LCD works with both Macs and Windows PCs through its conventional ports but currently works only with Windows XP in its characteristic USB mode. Samsung notes that the display is pivotable and should be available in some stores today for $379.
