Thought this stream was going
Thought this stream was going to be lame, but that was one impressive demo showing bandwidth prioritization with the torrents, youtube, and game latency.
If they released a PCI-E wireless AC + gigabit NIC I might actually be tempted to buy one. If I were in the market for a whole new system a mobo with killer might finally be a selling point, but I can’t justify buying a whole motherboard just for those features.
Again, really surprised by the demo you guys recorded. Much more impressive than I ever would have guessed. Would love to see more tests.
