Rivet Networks: Killer E2500 Ethernet Controller with new Killer Control-Center
For online gaming, a stable Internet-connection is an imperative. No matter how fast the hardware inside your PC is: Without a good connection, you can play seriously. Rivet Networks is a spin-off company of Qualcomm-Atheros founded in 2014, who has specialized on exactly that problem. The company develops the Killer Network cards, which are used by various PC and mainboard manufacturers.
Today, Rivet has introduced a new Ethernet-controller. The new Killer Ethernet-controller is named E2500, and it is of course supposed to provide an exceptional connection. On the presentation-slides of Rivet, the E2500 easily beats the unknown competitor.
A completely new feature is the Killer Control-Center. With this preloaded software the user is enabled to watch the network activity in real time. Also, he/she can allocated more or less bandwidth to individual programs, or even completely take all bandwidth away from one. If the user doesn´t want to do this manually, there also is the improved Advanced Stream Detect 2.0 technology, which can do the same job automatically.
The Killer E2500 will be available by the end of 2016 in various MSI and Gigabyte mainboards.
