Killer wireless 1103
High Performance Wireless Networking

Killer™ Wireless-N 1103 network adapters for notebook PCs are designed to deliver the fastest wireless networking performance using 802.11n, offering speeds up to five times faster than competing products. Faster downloads, smoother online gaming and better streaming video and audio experiences are now possible with up to 450 Mbps data rates, range-enhancing 802.11n technologies and exclusive Killer™ networking features like Advanced Stream Detect™ and Visual Bandwidth Control™.


Features: 

  • Cutting-Edge 11n Performance - Advanced, dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) adapter supports IEEE standards-based 802.11a/b/g/n. Killer Wireless-N 1103 enables industry-leading PHY rates up to 450 Mbps over 3 stream MIMO for enhanced rate-over-range performance and up to 5x better latency than the competition.1 
  • Advanced Stream Detect™ - Automatically classifies and prioritizes online games, HD video and high quality audio for better quality and fewer interruptions in your online experience.
  • Visual Bandwidth Control™ - See which applications are hogging bandwidth and tune performance for each, so they don’t interfere with your online gameplay or multimedia applications. Download files or watch a video or browse the web simultaneously – it’s all possible now with Visual Bandwidth Control™.
  • PC Monitor™ - Monitor and manage the health and performance of your wireless notebook PC with graphical displays, detailed logging and an intuitive user interface.
