First, have a look at this thing: No, you're not dreaming, this is not a video card, it's a Gigabit NIC!
No, you're not dreaming, this is not a video card, it's a Gigabit NIC!
Bigfoot Networks is excited to announce its revolutionary network interface card, Killer™. Killer™ is world’s first NIC designed to speed up and improve the performance of online games by giving gamers lower Pings and more Frames Per Second in their online games. Winning is Killer.
Unfortunately, pricing is still unavailable, but I'm pretty sure that this thing will be extravagantly expensive. It features a 400MHZ 32-bit processor, 64 MB of DDR ram and has a USB 2.0 slot. Will the Killer Nic really improve your gaming experience? No one knows yet, but I'll be sure to report back as soon as benchmarks become available.
