Bigfoot Killer K1 PCI Gaming NIC Network Interface Card BFN0003-01
Your dedication to hard and fast gaming is unparalleled: you have the best keyboard, the best joystick, the best display card, and the fastest cpu and memory. So why are you still using an ordinary network interface card?
Just as graphics got faster once they got their own dedicated processor, so does your networking. With 64MB of on-board memory and a dedicated network processor unit, your cpu can drop the overhead of overseeing the network card and get back to gaming more quickly. Direct game hardware interrupts further speed up your connection, and so does bypassing Windows' Network Stack. Add in a hardware firewall and the ability to run some processes directly on the 333 Mhz NPU and you've got a Killer NIC.
There are lots of 10/100/1000 Mbps NICs out there, but few indeed that cater so much to the gamer's need for unimpaired bandwidth. So what do you think? Is this the card for you?
333 MHZ NETWORK PROCESSING UNIT
The built-in 333 MHz Network Processing Unit (NPU) runs a highly-optimized version of embedded Linux to remove the packet processing burden from your CPU and processes the packets extremely fast and efficiently for improved online gaming performance.
USB 2.0 PORT
The onboard 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.
64MB DDR MEMORY
The onboard 64MB DDR memory works in conjunction with the NPU to support the network offloading functionality and the Flexible Network Architecture.
