Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

That reduction in ping is there with the Killer 2100. If you are standing idle in a place with no Zergs, no PVP, and basically nothing happening, you won't notice any difference having one of these cards installed. But play with it installed when all hell breaks loose and you will notice a difference, because that is what it is designed for. If you’re tired of being ganked by people before your computer is even aware of them, then this is the card for you.

Bigfoot Killer 2100

An investment that could make the difference between life and death

Indeed, during gaming, my latency went from an average of about 90ms to 45ms (hanging out around the bank-auction area saw this up slightly), and there were noticeably fewer severe frame rate spikes compared to other cards. No stuttering or freezing here in London, and I play on the North American servers.

Verdict

The Bigfoot Networks Killer 2100 does not work miracles and being priced at around £100 it is only a wise purchase for serious gamers who will appreciate noticeable in-game smoothness. Maybe it's not the first piece of kit to spend your money on when building a gaming PC, however, you will get small, but perceptible improvements in heavy traffic encounters. ®
