Bigfoot Networks today introduced the Killer K1, a new, more affordable version of its flagship gaming product, the Killer NIC. The Killer K1 is available for a limited time from selected e-tailers for a price as low as $149.99 after rebates. Powered by Lag and Latency Reduction (LLR) Technology, Killer K1 uses Bigfoot Network's 333 MHz Network Processing Unit (NPU) and 64 Megabytes of dedicated DDR RAM to offer gamers a faster online gaming experience.

Powered by Lag and Latency Reduction (LLR™) Technology, Killer K1 uses Bigfoot Network's 333 MHz Network Processing Unit (NPU) and 64 Megabytes of dedicated DDR RAM to offer gamers a faster online gaming experience.

The new Killer K1 is exactly what they are asking for - LLR Technology at a price they can afford. Killer K1 offers the same great gaming performance of the Killer NIC and works with all games including popular titles like World of Warcraft and Battlefield 2.

Unlike the original Killer NIC, the Killer K1 does not require a heat sink and does not come standard with Flexible Network Architecture (FNA) enabled. This means the FNA BitTorrent clients and firewalls and other cool FNApps designed to run on the Killer NIC will not work with the Killer K1 out of the box. Gamers who purchase the Killer K1 can at any time purchase a $30 upgrade from KillerNIC.com to enable the Flexible Network Architecture and start running FNApps on their Killer.

Additional Killer K1 technical specifications are as follows:
  • 10/100/1000 PCI Network Interface Card
  • 333 MHz Network Processing Unit
  • 64MB RAM
  • Full NIC functionality

    Maybe, but there are some motherboards like the Asus Commando which don't have PCI Express slots (besides the 2 x16 ones).
