Killer NIC Gives Competitive Edge to European Online Gamers

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) August 15, 2007

To ensure gamers worldwide have access to the online benefits of the Killer gaming network card, Bigfoot Networks, Inc., a research and development company, today announced it has signed distribution deals with leading companies in Denmark, Portugal, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Killer NIC, the first network card designed for online gaming, accelerates game data, smoothes the online gaming experience and gives users a competitive edge. The Killer gaming network card is now available through MM Distribution Aps in Denmark, PCB Distribution AB in Sweden, M.M. Vaquinhas, Lda in Portugal and EuroTech Marketing Services Ltd. in the United Kingdom.

"We are thrilled with the reception and support we have witnessed from gamers and our new distribution partners across Europe for the Killer NIC," said Harlan Beverly, co-founder and CEO of Bigfoot Networks, Inc. "We are confident the Killer NIC will be a smashing success in every region where it is sold by providing online gamers an overall smoother game experience with less lag and more responsive gameplay."

The new distribution agreements will aid in the wide spread acceptance and adoption of the Killer NIC worldwide. With large gaming populations outside the United States, Bigfoot's distribution partners will ensure the Killer NIC gets into their hands and they experience the benefits that were only available to gamers in North America.

Since its launch in 2006, the Killer NIC has received rave reviews and numerous awards as a result of its innovative LLR™ Technology. The Killer has been awarded a CPU Magazine Networking Device of the Year, HardOCP Editor's Choice Award, PC Perspective Silver Award, and GotFrag Editor's Pick.

About the Killer™ NIC

The Killer NIC is the industry's first gaming network interface card (NIC) designed to deliver online gamers increased responsiveness and smoother gameplay during intense action. Powered by Bigfoot Network's proprietary LLR™ Technology and a dedicated onboard NPU (network processing unit), the gaming network card is optimized to manage data from games faster. Available in two models - the Killer NIC M1 and Killer K1 - the gaming network cards reduce the lag and network latency associated with high action, interactive MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Play) and FPS (First Person Shooter) games over the Internet, such as Battlefield 2 and World of Warcraft.

In addition to improved gaming performance, the Killer NIC also enables users to run gamer utility applications without affecting game performance. Users can run Killer's Firewall and Torrent clients on the Killer NPU instead of the CPU, all without affecting game play.


Bigfoot sells its products through major e-tailers and retailers in the USA and Canada and through distribution channels in Europe and the AsiaPac region. The Killer NIC is also available through leading online game PC vendors including: Alienware, ABS, CyberPower, and Velocity Micro.
