Quality of LAN on Asus P5K vs. P5K-E Tags: Asus LAN Motherboards Last response: October 1, 2007 3:41 AM in Motherboards Share marsh1 September 30, 2007 7:06:36 PM I’m considering buying an Asus mobo and have a questions about LAN: The plain ASUS P5K has Quote:”PCIe Gb LAN controller featuring AI NET2” whereas the P5K-E version has Quote:”Gigabit LAN controllers, featuring AI NET2 Marvell88E8056® PCI-E Gigabit LAN controllers." I was just wondering how big a difference this makes in everyday use. Is the LAN on the P5K-E faster, more reliable, etc.? (E.g. will I get my ^ss kicked in online gaming with the vanilla P5K?)

Even if your PC was a server handling 100s or 1000s of different sessions, it would be tough to tell. For a stand-along box, it is definitely not something to worry about. marsh1 September 30, 2007 11:07:00 PM Thanks guys. Supremelaw, what difference have you detected? (In favour of what NIC, what exactly was the difference?) Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer marsh1 October 1, 2007 3:41:09 AM Thanks, Paul. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
