NEC has now announced its own 42" curved display, which will feature a resolution of 2880x900 pixels and a response time of under 0.02ms - pretty much identical to the Alienware specs, although an NEC spokeswoman said the two "have nothing to do with each other."

USB 3.0 Proposed

Intel has announced the formation of the USB 3.0 promoters group, a consortium that aims to create a "super speed personal USB interconnect."

The first members of the promoter group (HP, Intel, Microsoft, NEC Corporation, NXP Semiconductors and Texas Instruments) said that USB 3.0 will deliver more than ten times the data transfer bandwidth of USB 2.0, which tops out at 480 Mb/s. The new interface will be designed to be used in consumer electronics and mobile applications and able to deal with digital media file sizes that are likely to exceed 25 GB.
