Most importantly, I'm curious with how much latency one gets 
HDMI captured and transferred over network and displayed on a Linux 

As the Raspi4 can also act as USB-HID, maybe it could even act as
a KVM device, translating HDMI/keyboard/mouse of a system onto the
My monitor also has just one HDMI connector, so grabbing HDMI from
sources like the Nintendo Switch, I could present that live on the
single monitor.  Latency is probably not good enough for action
games, but desktop with Linux should be usable.

Just rp4 here, also just the 2GB variant, that is what was available
last years summer when I was in Europe.

So not sure about rp3, just compared some operations with
Nintendo switch and a Thinkpad L480:

Nice idea!
I had looked up radiation sensors, but not ordered anything.
