Killer K1

Bigfoot Networks, is the company behind the KillerNIC. The Killer NIC is a wired network adapter with a powerful programable processor and 64MB of DDR RAM. The RAM is used as a buffer, this way if you are downloading something it will go into your buffer first, and after that be moved to your hard drive, it´s programable processor (called NPU, network processing unit) runs Linux so basicly the possibilities are endless. But defnitely the coolest thing is it has it´s own USB port, this way you can hang an external harddrive, and store all your bittorrent downloads without CPU usage. Bigfoot Netwoks just announced a cheaper version of the KilerNIC, called the Killer K1 which has a MSRP of U$149.99 a 100 bucks less than their first version M1. The new Killer K1 has a slower processor, but for 100 bucks less than the M1, this is a product you might want to give a try.

I knew the guys behind Bigfoot at The Tech Zone´s CES Kick Off Party, where they not only showed off the wonders of the KillerNIC, but also gave out some cool K bling bling.
