If you’re buying a premium motherboard expressly for the “gaming” networking features, you’d be better off spending that money elsewhere. Was getting very sick of dealing with this NIC. This adds bandwidth control and network priority rules to the mix and allows simultaneous use of all network killef to assist with routing.

Long-time gamers might remember this technology from different manufacturers over the years, but the concept remains the same. Created account to say it worked great. Vario Mar 15, Still nice of the OP to help out those that haven’t spent as much time learning the nuances of driver installations.


Picking a motherboard with the right feature list for this test was easy.

Impossible that some people may have better things to do than that. The answer is pretty mundane, and it comes down to drivers.

Doing the above fix about months ago has fixed my issues with the network card being flaky. My cursor would skip around the screen, but could not get anything to function.

For example, ISP speeds are just a fraction of home network bandwidth or a server attached to a network with a single gigabit NIC gigabit fiber is as fast as it gets for most, and your typical cable or DSL connection is far slower at megabits or less. But from what we’ve seen in our testing, it simply doesn’t make the dramatic difference killsr advertising claims. When run with the latest downloaded rules, network file copy operations are shunted to Wi-Fi in a fruitless quest to preserve network speed, even when no high-priority network tasks are in evidence.

Everything seems to install and work smoothly, but test results were less optimistic.
