Here is a test from a well known company that refutes the others and is recent 11 Apr, Will KillerNIC perform better than the competition in such scenario? Sure, but that general consensus is based upon older controllers, on add-in cards, not the current E that is built into GAMING motherboards from nearly every brand. Both Left for Dead 2 and CS: Anyway, a result from another site not my results:

You can do that, sure. With a single exception, no tests or combination of settings made any difference, even when two or more separate local servers were accessed for copy operations, a best-case scenario configuration that bypasses some bandwidth limits.

Oh and its bbigfoot best to just use your router’s QoS. Fourstaff Moderator Staff member. Qualcomm eventually relented and now offers a barebones version of the Atheros LAN and Wi-Fi driver set without the manager included.


But not by much at all.

Although the specs still favor Intel in terms of driver polish, DPC latency and extended features, those solutions are also more expensive. Intel is often preffered for servers because they are more compatible with hypervizors like VMware and hyper-v. D intel is a good company.

I tried to go advanced options and then Speed and Duplex. Most people will be able to killet you that the “Killer Ethernet” is fairy pointless, I didn’t buy the laptop for it at any rate. Proprietary vs 3rd party. For a better experience, please enable JavaScript in your browser before proceeding.

For example, ISP speeds are just a fraction of home network bandwidth or a server attached to a network with a single gigabit NIC gigabit fiber is as fast as e2020 gets for most, and your typical cable or DSL connection is far slower at megabits or less.

bihfoot Because technically ,that’s what we’d really be comparing The idea behind gaming oriented NICs network interface controllers seems great: Picking a motherboard with the right feature list for this test was easy. Best part, they are cheaper than their plain-Jane Intel counterparts.
