Bigfoot Networks, the company behind the Killer Gaming Network card, has unveiled a new product at Computex. This new product is the end result of a joint venture with TLU, the company behind the PowerColor brand, as it pairs a graphics card with a network card on one PCB. This GPU/NIC combo card does not have an official name yet but it does utilize a Radeon HD 5000 series GPU so the graphics power should be pretty good. No word on which GPU it uses but the combo card does sport two DVI ports, one HDMI output, and one gigabit Ethernet port. The company hopes that gamers who want or need a graphics upgrade will buy this product which will not only boost your gaming horsepower but help to prioritize what programs receive the most bandwidth which will come in handy during an online match.

There was no mention of a price but Bigfoot Networks is planning on the combo card costing less than the combined amount of a Killer NIC and an HD 5000 GPU. The product is expected to launch within a few months so we should not have that long of a wait to see if this new combo card is worth it.
