USB monitors, like the Mimo, are ridiculously useful. They allow you to have a dual-monitor set-up no matter where you go, even if your only computer is a netbook. The only drawback of USB monitors is the fact that the USB 2.0 bandwidth limitation basically makes it impossible to render HD video or anything processor-intensive on your extra monitor. But the coming of USB 3.0 is going to change all of that. DisplayLink is working on a monitor prototype that uses 3.0 technology in order to gain a massive speed boost. Hot Hardware reports that this prototype will be up and running at CES 2010. This new monitor will allow video transfers of up to 4.8 GB per second, which means your little side monitor will now be able to handle HD. These new monitors won't be out until late next year, but we'll get our first glimpse of them in just a few more days. CES 2010 will start on January 7, 2010 and lasts until the 10th. Of course CES news is already pouring in. Read about it in our CES 2010 section.
