MSI has joined companies such as Gigabyte and Alienware (Dell) in featuring Qualcomm Atheros' Killer network adapters on certain motherboards and gaming laptops to improve gaming experience and video streaming performance. The chip in question is the Killer E2200 which features a number of improvements over its predecessor, the E2100. For example, the E2200 has driver support for Windows 8 and Linux and MSI has worked with Qualcomm Atheros to create a software package that allows users to choose which data packets get priority.
We can expect the first Killer-powered MSI devices to be announced during CEBIT from March 5 to 9 in Germany.

No no I am quite certain that it injects network packets directly into the human brain to kill them.
(in other news have you seen there commercials? They are hilarious. I require this to be linked in the article, its too good.
Still as a marketing gimmick, this is great.
I'd prefer MSI to work on quality. They need to improve their VRMs and/or cool them better, especially on lower-end boards.
It was infact a good bit slower when doing transfers of large amounts of files. For example when I backed up my computer, I only backed up my important files and docs, so maybe 10-20 gigs but it was 1000s of files. That took for ever, twice as long as the onboard nic or the cheap pci nic.
