Killer 2100 Network Card

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have one? Can they share their experience with it? It seems like a good buy to me if it can reduce ping / serve as a gateway & task manager for bandwidth. Looks pretty cool.

from what ive seen and heard, its not a real different in online gameplay with or without it. Id say save the money

Thanks for the opinion. Would love to hear if anyone here has it / if they can speak from personal experience regarding ping.

Lol, I came here looking for info on the same NIC.

If not a single person on OCN has one. I guess that should say something about it >.<

There are a few people on OCN that have because they do, in fact serve a purpose. It's basically a Linux PC in a PCI card. I wouldn't buy one to attempt to lower ping in games, but if you wanted to be able to download/upload (ie. torrenting) a bunch of stuff while maintaining good pings in games it might be a decent option.

There was a member that did a kind of min-review here.

Awesome, thanks for the link. I've seen in some online reviews that it helps with ping, but I'd guess it's probably because their plan was low and so redistributing available bandwidth made a difference.

well honest opinion of the killer 2100 is it does help and believe it or not quite a bit in certain games mainly games utilizing udp . I also want to make a huge piece of advice with these cards go into nchange network adapter settings and disable qos and file and printer sharing under the properties option only if solely using for gaming / general use not printer and file sharing these will make a great increase in performance . I also will advise you to go into the network side of the bigfoot settings and check tcp no delay and change tcp ack frequency to 1 then restart pc and the performance of these cards literaly jumps up %20. I dropped on average play on wow from 70-75ms latency to 50ms and game was alot less jittery also with pingtest.net my jitter dropped alot like 6ms less of jitter which is number one issue with online games and stutters/lag because of internet connection is jitter . I also will say my ping dropped alot on crysis 2 from around 60ms to 40ms with alot less random lag same for black ops and many others so yes it does work if setup properly . I will also say that they have modified the driver code to also offload / boost performance on other stuff now like tcp not just udp like it was before so it will benefit all around but be aware some games dont work well with the killer 2100 aka wont load into multiplayer maps and such but in general nearly all do hope this clears up some research for others it does work but has to be setup properly and works best with fresh os install and also not using any other network tweaks because using them then installing this and using it can cause conflict issues
