Will the NUBM44-V2 remain the highest output diode?

Will the NUBM44-V2 remain the highest output diode? and if not how long before might it take before it could be knocked off the top? :unsure:

As far as projector diodes meant for pumping phosphor I expect, well I speculate the arrays will be used in most new units and over time they may use less and less stronger chips until they get it down to just 1 but before that happens they may switch to a RBG laser arrangement with one big red, one green and one blue which will be great, but for a while we may see mostly arrays however an array with 4 stronger blues could be made better use of than these 20-24 chip arrays, only time will tell but it may be quite some time, most likely is the individual chips in the arrays may get more efficient and a little stronger but they won't be useful to us until someone transplants them into a single form factor, maybe a Chinese entrepreneur.

I keep hoping we will see some new holographic TV craze using strong high quality single mode laser diodes, that would be fantastic when mass production gets them down in cost, imagine a 750.00 holoTV projector with a 10w single mode blue, a 10w red single mode and a 5w green single mode all with very good beam quality, maybe when we get quantum laser diodes ??

BTW Sharp makes a 5w GH04C05Y9G and so far I have only tested one of them, it has divergence very much like the nubm44 but is only good for 5.5w however they are for sale at a good price as are the Chinese re-canned nubm08's and I hope to see a much stronger blue from Sharp but those arrays may be a bad omen for us.
