Bigfoot has claimed for a while that its Killer NIC improves gaming performance with a gaming processor onboard. The company has now redesigned the card, and has dubbed the new model the Killer 2100. The new NIC from Bigfoot comes with 128MB of DDR2 on the card, support for the Windows network stack bypass, and runs off of a PCIe x1 slot. Reviewers have usually shown improved performance in terms of lag on online games, but most cannot justify the price, as even the previous model was a tad expensive. This go around, the Killer 2100 is retailing for roughly $130, and probably only a select number of gamers will even purchase the card.
