Gigabyte announced that Bigfoot Networks has released a free software update for the Killer E2100 Networking Platform, bringing Advanced Stream Detect technology to all GIGABYTE G1-Killer motherboards. Advanced Stream Detect delivers unprecedented intelligence and improved network performance to GIGABYTE G1-Killer based systems by dynamically classifying all network traffic and prioritizing network-sensitive applications such as HD streaming video content, voice chat and online gaming to deliver the ultimate interactive online experience.
Kitguru reviewed the G1 Assassin a while ago, and we thought it kicked serious ass.
“The Killer E2100 has excelled at delivering an optimal gaming experience, and with Bigfoot’s new Advanced Stream Detect technology, users can now also enjoy automatic management of all network traffic including HD media streaming and communications,” commented Richard Chen, VP of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at GIGABYTE. “We’re thrilled to bring to able to bring this free update to our full range of GIGABYTE G1-Killer motherboards.”
“Bigfoot Networks is the leader in high-performance networking for online games, and with our new Advanced Stream Detect technology, we now bring these same optimizations and performance enhancements to streaming video, audio and real-time communications applications,” said Michael Howse, CEO of Bigfoot Networks. “Some of today’s most popular applications such as Skype, Youtube, Netflix and, of course, online games are the most sensitive to latency and network contention. Previously, you had to run network-intensive programs one at a time to achieve top performance. With Advanced Stream Detect, you can run videoconferencing, stream music and video, play games, and even download huge files in the background without affecting your online experience.”
