AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - September 15, 2016) - Rivet Networks, makers of the award winning line of high-performance Killer™ networking products for desktop and notebook PCs, is excited to announce the availability of their new Killer E2500 Gigabit Ethernet Controller, which can be found on gaming motherboards from industry leaders MSI and GIGABYTE.
The Killer E2500 delivers powerful networking technology to gamers and performance users, including significant new enhancements to its Advanced Stream Detect 2.0 Technology and the all new Killer Control Center. In addition to detecting and optimally prioritizing your games, video, and voice applications with Advanced Stream Detect 2.0 Technology, the Killer E2500 also detects and manages 500+ of the top global websites. Combined with the all-new Killer Control Center, the E2500 gives users full control of all aspects of their system's networking performance. Killer Control Center has been built from the ground up to smartly display networking information and allow users to control:
- The priority of each application and popular website
- The bandwidth used by each application and popular website
- The Killer interface that each application is going over
- The total bandwidth being used by system.
The Killer Control Center is automatically set up to give the user an incredible out of box experience, but users can easily adjust each setting to create the perfect customized experience.
The E2500 delivers the fastest real-time experience for gamers and performance users. The Killer E2500's Lag and Latency Reduction Technology accelerates your most important network traffic, such as your game data, and makes sure that your most critical packets never wait behind less important traffic. The E2500 improves latency, reduces jitter, and virtually eliminates video freezes by prioritizing your critical network traffic so that you will enjoy your gaming, web surfing, and streaming video experiences more than ever before.
In combination with a Killer Wireless-AC adapter, the E2500 provides unprecedented network speed and intelligence via Killer DoubleShot™ Pro, which allows both Killer network controllers to work together simultaneously. This ensures the highest priority traffic will always be put on the fastest and most reliable link while standard traffic is sent over the other.
"GIGABYTE is excited to partner with Rivet Networks on the implementation of the Killer E2500. With this new high-performance Ethernet controller, gamers will have even more control of their network bandwidth when using a GIGABYTE Motherboard," said Henry Kao, Vice President of GIGABYTE Motherboard Business Unit.

The Z170A GAMING M6 motherboard and Aegis Ti truly benefit from the new Killer E2500 game networking controller and are able to give gamers the competitive edge they are looking for.
