The First DisplayPort KVM Switch, Hurray

She’s not much to look at, but this is the first DisplayPort KVM switch, so you can hook up two DisplayPort-compatible computers to a single monitor (and keyboard and mouse, obviously) without converters. Why do you want direct DisplayPort hookups?

Because the KVM offers a native 2560×1600 resolution at 60Hz (or 3840×2400 at a lower refresh rate) with 7.1-channel audio. It’ll work with Macs and PCs, and has hotkey and push-button switching. At $US220, it’s a little pricey for a dual-monitor KVM, but we are talking DisplayPort here. [Star-Tech]
