IDF’s certainly delivered a few bombshells thus far, but sometimes it’s the simpler things that can brighten up your day, like DisplayLink’s announcement of its snappily-titled Winstars USB 3.0-to-HDMI adapter. Making use of all that extra bandwidth means using TVs as monitors no longer results in battling with a bad case of the jaggies. Running on its DL-3500 chip, the plug-in device will deliver resolutions up to 2560 x 1600, promising ultra-low latency and less of the jittery window and cursor movement which has troubled older products. Gamers will be pleased to hear that there is support for full-screen 3D, as well as both 2.1 and 5.1 channel audio. No word on a release date as of yet, but we’re guessing that the estimate of “soon” means that Yanks will see it by Christmastime. Full PR after the break.

Intel will launch the new Intel processors and Cedar Trail Cedarview, whose top model is represented by Intel Atom N2800 1.86GHz dual core with 1MB of cache memory.

The integrated graphics subsystem in the Atom CPU N2800, in fact, can play HD content at 1080p and support the technology Widi (Wireless Display).
