Bigfoot Killer 2100 Gaming Network Card Review

» Discuss this article (16)


Now we get to the point we all have been waiting for. To test the Bigfoot Networks Killer 2100, I will be running a series of tests designed to give us a good idea of how the card performs and how it compares against both another dedicated network card and an onboard NIC. The tests were run with an ISP speed of 12Mbps download and 5Mbps upload. All tests were run in the same manor to eliminate as many variables as possible. For the file transfer tests and the Passmark Network benchmark, I used another computer on my network connected to a Netgear Gigabit switch and using CAT6 cabling.


Testing Setup:



  • Network Tests:
  1. SpeedTest.net Online Network test
  2. Real-Time File Transfer
  3. Passmark Performance Test 7 (Network Test)
  4. Battlefield: Bad Company 2
  5. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 with Bittorrent


Speed Test:

Speedtest.net puts the most sophisticated broadband testing and analysis tools into the hands of anyone interested in finding out just how connected they actually are. This free service from Ookla opens hundreds of testing locations around the world to anyone curious about the performance of their Internet connection. The test was run three times and the average taken for each one.



In the Speedtest.net runs, the Killer 2100 actually pulled off the highest download and upload speeds and matched the onboard NIC for the ping.
