What you need to know

  • Microsoft launched a new wireless display adapter for PCs today.
  • The 4K Wireless Display Adapter can project your PC to another screen.
  • The adapter is available will be available for $70.

Microsoft today launched a new wireless display adapter that can project your PC to the big screen in 4K. The $70 adapter comes alongside the launch of a slew of other new accessories, in addition to the updated Surface Pro X and new Surface Laptop Go.

Microsoft is no stranger to wireless display adapters. The company has offered one that can connect your PC to a TV or projector for some time. That adapter, still available for $45, is limited to HD resolutions, however.

Microsoft says that this new adapter uses Miracast to duplicate your screen from your PC to whatever you have it connected to. That's the same tech behind its previous wireless display adapter. The big advantage here is that you can now cast content from your PC to a TV or projector in full 4K resolution.

The thinnest and lightest Surface Pro available

Surface Pro X delivers the most exciting design for the Surface Pro yet. While the ARM processor is faster than expected for many casual users, a Surface Pro 7 will be a smarter buy. But for those who need a light, thin, LTE-enabled productivity laptop, the Surface Pro X offers a unique set of features not found anywhere else. It's not a bad PC; it just needs the right owner.
