Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
The Killer NIC is vaporware - The Killer NIC is vaporware
Wed, September 06 2006 | 12:20PM | PermaLink Feedback?
While some have argued the Killer NIC is vaporware, we have proof that it is not. We saw it, we touched it, and then we even played some games on it. This preview will give a good overall idea what the Killer NIC is all about. "While the Killer NIC's focus is outlined on the previous page in terms of ping and frames per second, it has some incredibly impressive features outside of those. And to be 100% honest, while I am far from a hardcore online gamer any more, I found some of what is documented below to be more exciting than the ping reduction. "Everything that we have talked about above runs on an embedded version of Linux that is housed on the Killer NIC. Not only does the Killer NIC hardware run on Linux, the embedded Linux OS is accessible to the end user as well though the Flexible Network Applications Console. "Above you can see a Linux console prompt on our Windows XP machine. This console application will be shipped in the box with the Killer NIC as well as the Linux source code and also a SDK."
