Ultrawide 8.8-inch HDMI and USB information display is offered with optional touchscreen support

Last year, I wrote about the Turing Smart Screen low-cost 3.5-inch display based on a WCH CH552T 8-bit E8051 core microcontroller that connects to a PC or other device through a USB Type-C cable in order to display system or other information using AIDA64 software or an open-source Python software.

I’ve just come across another display that appears to serve the same purpose, except the “GeekTeches V35” is an ultrawide 8.8-inch display with 1920×480 resolution, micro USB and micro HDMI interfaces, and optional support for a touchscreen.

The display comes with a stand that enables a portrait or landscape orientation, as well as USB and HDMI cables. But the “HDMI-compatible” claim from the specifications looks suspicious to me, so it’s unclear if it can be used as an ultra-wide HDMI display, or if there are some limitations.

On the software side, we’re told the V35 display is compatible with AIDA64 software like the Turing Smart Screen, but I was unable to find the equivalent of the “UsbMonitor.exe” for it, and it’s unclear whether it can be made to work with the open-source turing-smart-screen-python program. My guess is that the USB port is used for power, information display, and the touchscreen (if any), and the HDMI port to drive the display like a normal screen, but I can’t see any photo or video showing a program running or a video playing on this specific display.

I first found the GeekTeches V35 ultrawide 8.8-inch display on Banggood where it is sold for $78.99 without a touchscreen and $90.99 with the touchscreen function, and the exact same model can also be found on Aliexpress for $64 and up. You’ll find plenty of other 8.8-inch displays with 1920×480 resolution on Aliexpress and other stores with different display boards, and one shows the Raspberry Pi OS desktop environment and the Windows desktop on the ultrawide display.
