    The bigger picture though is what Parm mentioned - sometimes we stress our networks out intentionally by multitasking, and other times it happens without us knowing (windows updates, softpatches, etc...). Either way, our attitude is why waste expensive bandwidth by turning everything off when you game when you no longer have to? Games usually only take about 20 kilobits of data at any given point, and if you have a 100 megabit connection you are wasting over 99% of your bandwidth when you game.
    But this product doesn't do anything to help bandwidth use by other users does it? Say you are gaming but your kids are watching Netflix on their devices. You really want QoS on the router, not the local network card. Or if you can't have that, limit the bandwidth on each device to leave some headroom for other devices/games.

    My MSI motherboard has the Killer and to be honest a very rarely use the app, no expert but it seemed well over hyped for me.

    Killer chips are basically unmodified Atheros, with optional Windows drivers for extra features you likely don't care about.

    They're fine as an alternative to Realtek or Intel. E2400 is basically Atheros AR8162, AC1535 is a Qualcomm QCA6174.
