VIP Computers has secured the exclusive UK distribution rights to the Killer 2100, a gaming network card from Bigfoot Networks, which the vendor claims is the fastest solution of its kind for online PC gaming.

The Cheshire-based distributor will initially stock the Killer 2100, followed by future Bigfoot products as they come to market.

“The Killer 2100 fits our gaming hardware portfolio perfectly. Gaming has become very focused on power and performance, and not to forget, on gaming specific peripherals including mice, keyboards, and headsets, but Bigfoot has a different approach,” VIP Computers’ networking product manager Mark Lynch said.

“The Killer 2100 places emphasis on controlling the flow of network traffic that enters the PC and by-passing the CPU for all gaming data to deliver network speed increases and ultimately gaming improvements, irrelevant of the users system specs, making it beneficial to all.”

Bigfoot Networks CEO Michael Howse added: “We are pleased to be working with VIP Computers, and we believe the Killer 2100 gaming network card is a perfect complement to their full line of performance-based PC upgrades.”

As well as providing the maximum possible speed for online gaming, the Killer 2100 offers a range of tools for monitoring and optimising network performance with at-a-glance graphical displays.
