When Qualcomm Atheros launched its gaming-optimized Killer Wireless-N 1202 Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combo card about a month ago, the silence was deafening; the component launched without a single OEM manufacturer on board, meaning you couldn't actually, you know, find it inside any laptops. That changes today, as the company announced that Dell's Alienware gaming notebooks will sport the Killer Wireless-N 1202 heading into the future.
The Killer Wireless-N 1202 also packs in Wi-Fi Direct capabilities and Qualcomm Atheros' Advanced Stream Detection technology, which can "automatically classify and prioritize latency-sensitive network traffic for online games, HD video and high-quality audio to maximize your online experience."
Have you played around with a Killer Wireless card? What were your experiences with it? Does it bring much to the table gaming traffic-wise?
