With USB4 and Thunderbolt 3, when will monitors with INCLUDED GPUs be sold?

We've always thought of monitors as something that just.... DISPLAYED what the computer was outputting. This was mainly because of transfer speed limitations of wired connections vs direct, on board connections. But now that wired connections have become fast enough to essentially be PCIe passthroughs, when do you think we'll start seeing monitors with INCLUDED GPUs? Are we moving away from having GPUs inside of computers? Computers could be.... SIGNIFICANTLY smaller if we didn't need PCIe slots or GPUs inside of the case. 

 

Thoughts?

 Then monitors would be thicker and heavier. Also, it'd probably be more expensive to upgrade your gpu as you'd have to upgrade the display as well

I mean.... don't the two usually go hand in hand anyway? And if the GPU was in the monitor, you could use it for multiple computers instead of needing multiple GPUs. There's plenty of unused space inside of monitors. They're basically just display panels wrapped in plastic anyway. Plus it'd be a heck of a lot easier to cool the GPU if it was hanging out behind the monitor instead of inside the computer case.

I mean, this isn't really an option. You would basically need a pc inside of the monitor to make it work. The GPU couldn't just "hang out" either. That would be really bad system design. Also, the power usage of the monitor would be crazy. The CPU and GPU are codependent on each other. How would the GPU communicate with a computer itself without everything else? It just doesn't make sense.

Have you seen how thick GPU's are of late and how thin are monitors? Even my over 10 year old dell E196FP monitor couldn't fit a GPU. I don't need overpriced monitors that will turn obsolete in a few years because the GPU's inside them are slow.

 

There is already relatively small demand for existing external GPU's, what would make you think there'd be any demand for a monitor with one?

Not really. And the performance loss over Thunderbolt would only make it worth it for low/mid end GPUs.

It's called an all in one pc and they suck for gaming or upgradeability.  

 

Monitors tend to outlast gpu's performance wise.  

 

Monitors would be scarce during a mining splurge. 

 

Physical space is limited in a monitor. 

 

Multiple monitors can be run from 1 pc. 

 

Technically, most modern monitors have a GPU built in already.

Not interesting with such tech even it exist. 

 

GPU will probably cannot upgrade and make the monitor expensive than already expensive. Also heating issue
