ASUS Thunderbolt card features Killer NIC and Xonar Audio

Posted on Saturday, January 08 2011 @ 18:27:14 CET by

Earlier this week Gigabyte showed off its G1.Killer motherboard series with integrated Bigfoot Killer network controllers and today ASUS reveals a PCIe add-on card named Thunderbolt. This multifunction card features the Killer 2100 NIC as well as ASUS Xonar sound. It will be bundled with the Rampage III Black Edition but it may also be sold separately in the near future.
The ASUS ThunderBolt is a PCI-Express addon card, integrating a Killer 2100 controller with its own dedicated memory; and in probability, an ASUS AV100 audio chipset found on low-profile ASUS Xonar sound cards such as Xonar DS. It provides 7.1 channel audio out with over 100 dBA SNR, and packs software that emulates popular positional-audio technologies such as EAX, and various Dolby/DTS mojo. The card draws power from a 4-pin Molex connector. The entire card is covered by an EMI shield, which also gives it a nice "product" feel.
