Intelligent Bandwidth Control keeps the game running smoothly and lets you allocate bandwidth to other applications so you can do more while you game.

Demand for the WinFast® Killer™ Xeno™ Pro has been fueled by continued growth in the worldwide video game market. “The WinFast® Killer™ Xeno™ Pro appeals to gamers at every level of expertise and all players benefit from its plug-and-play installation, which gets them into the game with minimum downtime. Competitive gamers appreciate the ability to adjust performance using Intelligent Bandwidth Control. We anticipate strong demand for this powerful and innovative networking technology,” said K.S. Lu, CEO of Leadtek.

Online gamers depend on their network connection. Their network card shouldn’t be an afterthought. Lab tests show that the WinFast® Killer™ Xeno™ Pro significantly accelerates online games, giving players a crucial advantage in today’s demanding online gaming environments.
