We already have several competitions running at Kitguru, but we like to make sure all our readers have plenty of chances when it comes to winning, sexy, drool worthy technology.
Our good friends at Bigfoot Networks are offering five Killer 2100 Network gaming cards to five lucky readers, worldwide. While many people don't understand how a network card could really improving their online gaming experience, when KitGuru tested the unit months ago, we were very impressed by the performance. Check out our review over here.
Gaming Network Card? Yeah, Right…
Yes, a Gaming Network Card. Your “dumb” NIC relies on Windows and your CPU to do all of its work – when Windows and your CPU should be running your game. See the graph to the right? During a game, a “dumb” NIC can have huge, unpredictable latency spikes. Killer™ 2100 has latency in MICROseconds. Which means your bullet gets on the wire first. In short – pwnage.
So How Does It Work?
Game Networking DNA. We detect game data at the wire using our Game Detect Technology. We offload that data to the Network Processing Unit (NPU) on Killer™ 2100. Offloaded traffic goes around Windows for tremendous speed benefits. Which means bullets, spells and grenades get to you faster so you can get out of the way, and get to your enemies faster so they can’t.
With a 400mhz processor onboard and 128MB to help the performance, this is a serious piece of hardware.
