Default widi capabilities

I'm looking at updating my monitor and am curious about wireless display. I'm looking at the samsung t27b750 or the s27a950d. Ive only seen the feature demonstrated with laptops and want to know if I can sync it with my tower and continue using it without a physical connection. ie DVI cord. I like the concept of moving my monitor to a different room in my house while still working through my tower.

Default Re: widi capabilities

Welcome. WiDi is done through the integrated graphics of a compatible intel processor and intel wireless adapter.
Intel® Wireless Display (Intel® WiDi) — System requirements for Intel® WiDi
This is the list of requirements for WiDi.

Even if you did have an ivy-bridge cpu, widi is very finnicky about reception. The chances of you being able to stream between rooms is unlikely. My widi would get interrupted just from a person walking in front of the path between the laptop and the adapter
