Gamers value their time online. A lot. Anything which can enhance game time, improve frame rate or targeting performance is a huge asset. The Killer NIC is a necessary development in computer gaming, adding almost an additional system on a card, rather than a traditional Network Interface Card. Powered by Lag and Latency Reduction (LLR™) Technology, Killer gives you superior speed and performance, with more Frames Per Second and lower Pings when they matter most: during intense online gaming action. Killer NIC does this by several innovative methods.
Network packets from your game are prioritized and delivered before other network activity. UltimatePing Technology maximizes the speed of your PC because the 400MHz Network Processor Unit (NPU) delivers data to games faster, reducing your Ping. If some opponents complain that your ping is “too low,” then PingThrottle allows you to adjust it a little higher – then dial it back down to go in for the kill. MaxFPS technology offloads network processing to Killer, allowing your CPU to prioritize what you need it to: your game. The sooner you get one, the sooner you’ll be smoking the competition!
- 400 MHz Network Processing UnitThe built-in 400 MHz Network Processing Unit (NPU) runs a highly-optimized version of embedded Linux to remove the packet processing burden from your CPU and delivers the packets extremely fast and efficiently.
- USB 2.0 PortThe included USB 2.0 port works with Killer's Flexible Network Architecture (FNA) to enable gamers to access hardware accessories (USB Drive, Microphone, etc.) while running FNA applications.
- Nickel-Plated Aluminum HeatsinkThe Nickel-Plated Aluminum Heatsink helps to dissipate heat from the NPU while it runs advanced networking and Flexible Network Architecture (FNA) functions.
- 64MB DDR MemoryThe onboard 64MB DDR memory works in conjunction with the NPU to support the network offloading functionality and the Flexible Network Architecture.
