MHL 3.0 is also capable of charging devices that run on 5V right up to 2000mA, which means we now have the capability of 10W charging. 10W charging will see tablets and smartphones charging faster than ever, which should put smiles on digital dials. We should see MHL 3.0 being baked into devices as we shift deeper into 2014.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
