Most killer nics although they running linux , do not have a driver for the linux os. No plans exist to make one either.[edit]

Investigate , you will find it true. Official forum has been abandoned as well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:10, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Added clarification[edit]

I added that it is also available on gaming boards for Intel from all of the main players ", as well as gaming motherboards for Intel from Gigabyte, Asus, MSI, and ASRock.", right after the AMD Fanboy stuff. (talk) 20:30, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Outdated reference for citation 8[edit]

Citation number 8 is from 2006. This is the entire premise for the "Reception" section. Either this section should be reworded to reflect the changes in Killer models and offerings with new citations, or it should be removed. The evidence of Killer network chips and cards increasing performance on modern PCs shows negligible gains, if nothing at all. The problem is that offloading the network stack from Windows doesn't increase performance if the computer hardware running Windows is modern and robust enough to handle it while multitasking with other processes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cipher nemo (talkcontribs) 15:03, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
